Abstract
This work presents a useful tool for farmers who apply precision agriculture techniques, allowing the use of low cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). One of the main precision agriculture drawbacks is the difficulty in taking aerial images within a narrow time window restriction, due to weather or resources limitations. The proposed system allows farmers to easily define an aerial image coverage mission by using Geographical Information System (GIS) tools. The algorithm computes a complete path by taking into account spatial resolution and camera specifications once image requirements and area to be covered are defined. This work introduces a three-step procedure: Mission definition, Path generation and Mission execution.
