Lake Leake…

Lake Leake

We were heading into town again today. On the way we took a detour to Lake Leake to check it out and give the drone a run.

Up first a 360˚ interactive panorama taken from high above the lake.

Using your mouse or keyboard (arrow keys) you can control your view and pan around the scene (and even zoom in and out). Clicking the square box icon towards the top left corner also allows you to run it full screen.

I was using a new version of the Dronepan software which has now been improved for the Phantom 4. Firstly allowing the taking of an additional row of frames with the camera angled slightly upward to capture more of the sky. Secondly it allows the addition of a delay before taking the frames allowing the drone to stabilise a little more after rotating and moving the gimbal.

You can see that the lake is almost perfectly circular which leads me to surmise that this was once the mouth of some ancient volcano of sorts.

Below you have the flattened 2:1 aspect ratio equirectangular projection of the entire 360˚ (by 180˚) scene.
