When collecting and uploading a dataset, it should be made up of only one area, not separate distinct regions. Make sure that you have enough overlap between images.


Processing datasets with separated regions of images is much more likely to degrade the accuracy of the whole dataset. If there are holes in the survey you are uploading please submit more images to fill in the holes or remove the region that is not connected to the rest of the survey.

If the uploader detects this issue it will flag the images that are not connected and offer to remove just those images. If you have more to add then the validation will update to reflect that the regions are now connected.


  • If you have a dataset that has sufficient overlap but is flown much higher than the standard limit for drone operations you may receive this warning. Please contact data support using the chat feature in the portal if this is the case to submit the dataset.
