TREMOR GCS progress

Some more progress on the GCS. I integrated a line builder and line manager. The line builder contains the editor to edit GPS coordinates of the line, as well as options for line thickness and color. The line manager imports these coordinates as a set, and given a name. This clears up the line builder, allowing multiple lines to co-exist.

The Line builder can import a list of GPS coordinates from a text file with the format:

lat lon
lat lon

I plan on adding a 3rd dimension, but i don't yet have a barometric pressure sensor.

This is zoomed in to show the Open Street map layer.

The line appears shifted from the road, but it is really aligned. The line right now is at an elevation of 2500 km, so the shifting is due to the perspective distortion. Any lower, the line disappears into the ground (the globe has elevation data). I need to figure out how to have the line at ground level.

  • Thank you. In fact, everything up except the map is not required during flight, just pre-flight. Windows can be minimized to the side bars, so it should be nice and clean.
  • Great work there. The layout is nice and clear and you didn't use dials to display information on the UAV. This will be a great basis to form a great GCS. Keep it coming.
