It’s been long in the making, but it’s finally here. UgCS has released a new version of its ground station software for drones – UgCS 2.9 which features a ton of improvements and new features.
A feature often requested by the users – possibility of planning area scan missions by manually entering the altitude – is finally here. One of the biggest changes you’ll notice is that the Area Scan tool is now divided into two separate tools – Area Scan and Photogrammetry tool. The Photogrammetry tool allows to plan area scan missions with a specific GSD. Meanwhile the Area Scan tool now allows scanning an area either with using AMSL or AGL altitude.
Another notable change is that the support for two new drones has been added. DJI Phantom 4 and Matrice 100 are now supported in UgCS.
Furthermore, experimental support for GeoTiff file import as map overlays and joystick control for Ardupilot and DJI has been added.
