Hi Jaques,

The optimum parameters depend a great deal on what equipment you have. Wide field of view lenses and low spatial resolution do not make a great match for helicopter surveys.

Your altitude and survey speed largely depend on instrument performance, and what optics you have. I would suggest conducting a survey in less than 10 mph wind speed, on an overcast day when the load is high.

For other parameters, please email me with your equipment specifications.
