Point Density Estimation
Flight Altitude AGL (1) (m/ft)
Point Density (pts/m2) (2)
Flight time (3)
Number of Laser Returns
(1) Flight Altitude Above Ground Level (AGL) (2) Average Point density. Note that calculation does not factor target remission (reflectivity %). (3) Flight time is calculated under standard flight conditions (using new Microdrones batteries)
