How To Use The Mission Planner: Rectangular and Polygon Missions

Autonomous drones can fly and take pictures according to the set route planning. Autel EVO II drones need to be used in conjunction with the Autel Explorer App. Plan in the Autel Explorer App to see the rectangular and polygonal mission planners.

Using drone photogrammetry is a great way to take advantage of the autonomous capabilities of your drone, capturing a large number of images and uploading them to your preferred 3d mapping software.

Rectangular Missions Tutorial

Open Autel Explorer App, click on Misssion

In Misssion missions, waypoints, rectangles and polygons will be seen

If there are any saved missions, they will be shown in the Misssion history

Click on Rectangle Task Options

By default the item's location will be your phone's current gps location

You can also adjust the map yourself, or manually search and add locations

Create a project, which will form a roadmap

But the crosshatch option is not available.

There are some plus signs in the polygonal mission planner's roadmap display

Click on the + sign to turn the blue dot means you can drag this point to change the shape of the entire polygon task
