Hello All,

There is a new category of GIS users: drone's users. There is already the
> "Video UAV Tracker" for Qgis.

Yes,  true !

As you can see in this image:


For that I created a new plugin, named  "DronePlanner", that has the
following functions:

1)  create a  DronePlan  along a line, calculating  intermediate  points,
with a delta distance from focal and CCD parameters, with direction angle

2) create a zig-zag path to cover an area.

3) display the path simulation on GoogleEarth,  and take from GE the angle
parameters to recalculate the path again.

4) export the path in MikroKopter format.

Who is interested ?   :)
