SmartAP autopilot, along with SmartAP GCS, allows users to precisely geo tag images for further post-processing. When the camera feedback pin is connected to the autopilot, the autopilot detects the exact moment the picture was taken and engraves this information into the log file. It contains the following information:
ID - image sequence number
Latitude - latitude location of the image
Longitude - longitude location of the image
Altitude - altitude of the image (MSL - above mean sea level)
Roll - roll of aircraft
Pitch - pitch of aircraft
Yaw - yaw of aircraft
To geotag images, download the log file. Then open SmartAP GCS and open the left side menu:
And go to
Options menu in the top-right corner and click
Open log file...
You can also simply drag and drop the desired log file into the "Logs" pane. Once the file is open, locate the
CAM_TRIGGER group on the right panel.

Options and click
Then you select the folder destination that you'd like the log file to be exported to. After that you can open the file with any file editor and check its content:
Later, this information can be used for further post processing and map stitching.
