DJI Terra Cluster Permanent
What do I need to start using DJI Terra?
1. A Phantom 4 Series drone that supports DJI Terra, several batteries;
2. A laptop, a microSD card and a card reader;
3. A compatible cable (a USB-to-USB cable for Phantom 4, Phantom 4 Pro, Phantom 4 Advanced, a Micro-USB cable for Phantom 4 Pro + V2.0, a USB-C cable for Phantom 4 RTK).
What are the computer system requirements for 2D and 3D reconstruction with DJI Terra?
A Windows 7 or above (64 bits) system is required when using the DJI Terra.
Minimum hardware configuration: 16GB RAM and a NVIDIA graphics card with at least 4GB VRAM (must have a compute capability of 3.0 or above).
Recommended hardware configuration: at least 32GB RAM and at least a NVIDIA 1050 Ti.
With these configuration requirements met, every additional 10 GB of RAM will be able to process 4000 additional 4K images. The higher the system configurations, the larger the number of images that can be processed and the faster the reconstructions. The results from the models generated will not be affected by different hardware configurations.
Can I still use the paid features of DJI Terra without an internet connection?
For the offline version, once installed, all paid features operate without an internet connection.
For the online version, you must have an internet connection to login, however, you can continue to DJI Terra’s paid features offline without logging in again for up to 3 days.
Can I unbind devices from DJI Terra licenses?
You can unbind your DJI Terra Agriculture, Pro, Electricity and Cluster licenses(Except Agras-gift Agriculture license). To unbind, please contact DJI Support. The 1-device licenses can be unbound once in each natural year. 3-device licenses can be unbound twice in each natural year. Once processed, all devices registered under the license will be unbound.
What is the one-year free update period?
It is the one-year period from the first date of binding any permanent package after purchase, during which you can update to any version released in that period for free and use all functions included in the package.
My software has gone into the paid update period but I have not paid any upgrading and maintenance fee. It has been a few years and I would now like to upgrade it to the latest version. Do I need to pay the upgrading and maintenance fees for the previous years?
My software has gone into the paid update period but I have not paid any upgrading and maintenance fee. I have since downloaded a new version released during the paid update period. Will I be able to use it?
The paid functions will not be available, but you can still use the basic functions.
Will unbinding the software change its first binding date?
Can I replace the hardware of my device after the offline version is bound to it?
No, the license is bound to the device’s hardware and therefore replacing hardware would invalidate the license.
What features are restricted in the offline version?
The following online features are not available in Offline Mode:
– Unlocking GEO Zones
– Map loading and location searching
– Without logging into a DJI account, some flight control functions in DJI Terra are restricted
What is the difference between Waypoints Mission, Mapping Mission, Oblique Mission, Corridor Mission and Detailed Inspection Mission?
Waypoints Mission: plan a flight route and capture photos or videos at waypoints along the route.
Mapping Mission: collect images of an area to reconstruct a 2D model.
Oblique Mission: collect images of an area from multiple camera angles to reconstruct a 3D model.
Corridor Mission: collect images of a corridor (e.g. rivers, railroads) to reconstruct a 2D model.
Detailed Inspection Mission: Set target points on a reconstructed model and a flight route will be automatically generated, allowing the aircraft to capture photos at these target points.
Why are there 5 flight routes when I plan an Oblique Mission in DJI Terra?
DJI Terra’s Oblique Mission uses 5 flight routes to capture the same amount of data as using 5 cameras simultaneously on a drone. The 5 flight routes correspond to the 5 camera headings – downward, forward, backward, leftward, and rightward.
What is Ground Sample Distance (GSD)?
In photogrammetry and remote sensing, ground sample distance (GSD) in an aerial digital photo (such as an orthophoto) of the ground is the actual distance on the ground captured as represented by pixels. The unit is cm/pixel.
In the Mapping Mission page, what does Mission Relative Height in Advanced Settings mean? How is it different from Mission Altitude in Basic Settings?
Mission Relative Height in Advanced Settings is the height of the takeoff point relative to the area being mapped.
Mission Altitude is the height of the drone relative to the area being mapped, which is also how ground sample distance (GSD) is calculated.
When do I have to adjust the Mission Relative Height in Advanced Settings?
When there is a large difference between the elevation of the takeoff location and the elevation of the area being mapped, you can adjust the Mission Relative Height in Advanced Settings to ensure that the Mission Altitude is determined considering the elevation of the area being mapped.
Please see the attached illustration: If the drone takes off from a 50 m building marked H1 in the illustration, the area being mapped is marked A, and the expected altitude for aerial data collection is 100 m, you can set the Mission Altitude in Basic Settings to 100 m, and Mission Relative Height in Advanced Settings to 50 m.
Similarly, if the drone takes off from H2 to map area B, which is a hill with an elevation of 40 m, and the expected altitude for aerial data collection is 60 m, then set Mission Altitude to be 60m, and Mission Relative Height to be -40 m.
What models of aircraft are supported by detailed inspection flight path planning?
Phantom 4 RTK, Matrice 300 RTK
Can detailed inspection missions be conducted if the aircraft is flown at mission relative altitude?
No, the aircraft needs to be flown at absolute altitude.
What are the important things to take note of when planning or executing a detailed inspection mission?
1. Make sure the RTK data sources are consistent when planning or executing a flight path;
2. Flight paths can only be executed when the RTK is in FIX status. During execution, you may set the first waypoint as the hovering inspection point. The mission must be stopped if the location of the inspection point is incorrect.
