DJI Terra software update makes drone mapping smoother, faster – DroneDJ

DJI Terra is an all-in-one drone mapping solution that contains all the resources that surveyors or project managers need to plan, visualize, process, and analyze aerial data. The software has now been updated to version 3.3.0 to improve both the product features as well as the processing speed of Terra. Here’s what’s new…
The 3D reconstruction speed in the software has been increased by 25%. In addition, model volume in several formats (.b3dm, .osgb, .s3mb) have been reduced by up to 30% to improve user experience.
Another highlight is that DJI Terra now supports 2D reconstruction with Map Grid, which sets grid length and divides digital orthophoto maps (DOM) and digital surface models (DSM) into grids. You can also generate downsampled DSM in 2D reconstruction for urban scenes, which can be used in terrain follow flight missions.
The software update further allows for simultaneous 2D and 3D reconstruction in a single mission. For 2D reconstruction, ensure that the camera tilt angle of at least three images is less than or equivalent to 35 degrees. You can also use the new Reconstruction Parameter Checklist to ensure accuracy before reconstruction. In the meantime, DJI has fixed the issue where cluster reconstruction would fail due to local network instability.
Version 3.3.0 further adds support for detailed inspection missions with flight route waypoint checks to ensure flight safety. Meanwhile, if you’re processing point cloud data collected by Zenmuse L1, you will be able to modify base station coordinates. DJI has also added support for adjusting the height offset of point cloud data collected by Zenmuse L1.
