Suggestion: Provide Orthomapping capability RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • ICE looks great.  Here's what I think Microsoft could do to make it even better: enhance ICE so that users can create aerial ortho photos from drone images and publish them to the cloud.

    I'm interested in using drones for aerial mapping.  I would like to be able to take imagery collected by drone cameras, stitch them together into a georeferenced .dzi file, then upload them to the cloud.  Once in the cloud, I would like to be able to discover and combine orthophotos (.dzi) files from different sources.  I'd like to pan around my city in Bing Maps and see footprints of drone imagery that I can turn on and zoom in on.  Note that the resolution of drone orthophotos should support zooming in closer than zoomlevel 19.

    Thanks, Kirk
