Add drape waypoint functionality

When AreaScan is used, UgCS places extra waypoints to keep the flight path at a constant altitude above ground level.  However, once the route is converted to waypoints, this functionality is lost.  There needs to be a way to either convert the waypoints back to a route so the draping can happen again, or have a command to apply drape to segments.  This would command UgCS to add waypoints along the segments to maintain height above ground.

I've also needed this when I import a CSV of endpoints, but there is no way to get the drape unless I manually add waypoints along the route.  Please add this to your list of feature requests.

  • OK. Terrain following can be useful especially for scenario with import. Thank you.
