looking at all the on line, upload your images and they let you know when they are stitched, i ended up with an idea that i am trying to figure out how to do. In my area we are prone to brush fires in the pine barrens. just google Long Island wild fires '95. Recently we have also had a huge problem with a beetle infestation that the forestry service has been trying to stop by cutting trees and just leaving them where they fall. As a Fireman this is where we are going to run into problems. While our brush trucks are some serious pieces of machinery, the randomly fallen trees can cause issues navigating through the woods. I am planning on trying some of the more common mapping programs for flying a fairly large area quickly to get images of the area the trucks would be working in. i am looking for thoughts for a program that would stitch together a map file from a laptop. higher resolution would be great, but speed of stitching would be more important. Basically we would love to create an up to date google earth image that could be sent to the officers in the truck so they can more easily navigate to the head of the fire. it would be great if i could get it to show their position in real time, but we are working on how to best coordinate their paths with subsequent flights. Any thoughts or insights would be greatly appreciated.
