YAY!! The thermal is working as is the X100. Unfortunately Mikes hexacopter is somewhere in the ferns somewhere in the valley.
Spent the day finding ground control points to be able to locate the vertical wall that Greg is creating, for Arc Scene. When I got several points, it was time to watch out for horses as they sent out the X100. Once that came back, it was time to get the thermal working and do some transects. The transects were successful even though they were preliminary. Successful in that the images came out but being able to locate caves was another story. The vegetation was nearly the same color as the caves, or at least the grey scale was hard to detect differences.
At this point, my question is, can I create a control to be able to find caves, using the deeper bunkers and less deep cave along the road to the right of the bunkers, to see if there are differences between the depths as well as to get a perspective as to the greyness of the cooler areas that can be distinctive from vegetation.
Tomorrow is the day off. Gonna help find the hexacopter, and then find a way down to Kailua to do some sightseeing and shopping.
