Hi, is there an easy way to map large areas of land with photographs?

I tried mapping an area of around 70 acres from about 110m high with the gimball pointing vertically down yesterday.  It obviously can be done, but is a bit hit and miss.

Any ideas or any P3P compatible software?

Cheers

DroneDeploy is good, others are MapsMadeEasy and Pix4D.
Agisoft Photoscan is very good for stitching to creat orthophotos

I use Maps Made Easy. The program will return your Phantom to the spot that it left from after a battery change.

This is a stitching of over 100 images that I did in Photoshop.  It did a really good job of it.  This is a smaller version of the original.  If the original were printed at its native resolution, it would be over 14 feet tall.

I have Photoshop stitched, usually less than 10 images.  For larger areas I have used Maps Made Easy but this only works for iOS.  Processing up to 60 images is free and includes a 3D surface having elevation.
