Google Earth Integration
A UAV mission is a complex operation that may take place at every location around the world with many different orography. GCS software typically uses 2D maps due to the simplicity they offer to operators. However, having the capability to visualize a 3D representation can be helpful for staff to support the mission without previous aeronautical experience as they provide a more intuitive interface.
At UAV Navigation, we do not stop providing alternatives and innovative solutions to provide our customers with cutting-edge products that make planning and execution easier. We always ensure flight safety. For this reason, besides the Flight Gear addon, a tool that increases the operator’s situational awareness, we have implemented a Google Earth integration with Visionair so the operator will be able to make use of all the advantages and tools this software provides.
By means of this integration, the operator will have a 3D visualization of the flight. This way, the operator situational awareness will be increased as it will have a real-time conception of the landform. Visionair overlays the trajectory of the particular flight, giving a realistic visualization of the flight, which may be useful for certain concepts of operation.
Additionally, there is more to it, this integration also has a positive impact on the post-analysis stage of the mission as the UAV Navigation post analysis tool, Visionair Analytics, is able to create a ready-to-import file that can be visualized using Google Earth.
UAV Navigation always develops its products, considering the possible needs that customers may have during their entire mission. This way, better situational awareness, even during the post-analysis, may become a key to increase flight safety.
