This is a panorama showing the road I live on. It's about a mile long and ends in a river that's also the county line. This a planar panorama. It works in a manner similar to a flatbed scanner. This one was shot from about 300 feet up. The panoramas that follow were shot from a higher altitude.
The panorama below is the same scene, shot from about 1000 feet up.
The panorama below is from the Mavic's altitude limit, about 1500 feet up.
And here's a bonus! The panorama below was shot from a single vantage point, about 1600 feet up. It covers an area of about four square miles. The original image was about 235 megapixels.
These panoramas are the result of slowly tweaking and refining the process to yield something a little different in drone photography. I did this with my Mavic Pro drone and I used Litchi software to plan and execute the flights.
