Custom maps
UgCS ground station software allows users to import map imagery, import DEM data to add custom elevation models, import KML data to add placemarks and import 3D buildings.

Buildings import

Buildings import

UgCS allows you to import the models of 3D buildings. This allows UgCS to automatically calculate the flights around the buildings by taking into the account the desired pre-set distance to objects. The amount of buildings which can be imported is 20 in the Open version, 100 in One version and an unlimited amount of buildings in the Pro version.

KML data import

KML data import

KML data import allows operator to import placemarks to denote important places on the map.

KML stands for Keyhole Markup Language.​

DEM data import

DEM data import

DEM stands for Digital Elevation Models. The terrain is always changing. These changes are not always implemented into 3D maps as fast as it is needed. An example would be a quarry. If the operator of a UAV would want to fly an automated mission for the purposes of mapping, surveying or monitoring a quarry, he would need to import DEM data to fly below what would otherwise be considered ground level. This data would then make the drone able to fly closer to the ground in the quarry to do its mission. Another scenario is in mountains where operator needs to use DEM with more precise data as commonly available map providers use too few elevation points on their maps to plan safe missions. This feature is available for users of UgCS Pro.

Georeferenced images import

Georeferenced images import

When flying automated missions with drones, precise maps are more important than ever. In UgCS it is possible to import geotiff images as map overlays. This gives you the power to customise the UgCS map to suit your needs.
