Introduction

The Look Straight Down customer pages are designed to help you specify exactly where you need aerial photographs taken.  You will create a shoot list and add specific locations on a map.  You can have any number of shoot lists, and each one should contain locations in the same general area that you will want photographed at the same time.  Once you have one or more shoot lists you create a mission order that will be fulfilled by Look Straight Down at the earliest opportunity.  After the mission has been flown you can review the pictures in context at a lower resolution, and download the full-resolution images.

Registration and Log-In

The customer registration page asks for contact information and allows you to choose a user name and password.  This contact information is kept strictly confidential and used only to facilitate communication with Look Straight Down.

Map Editor for Shoot Lists

This is the page you will use to specify groups of locations to be photographed.  When you first enter this page you will create a new list by entering a name and pressing "Create List".  You can specify a base name for a group of points by typing in the "Marker base name" field.  Now you can add targets by pressing "Add Target".  Note that the targets are named using your base name and a number which increments.  Move each target to the desired position on the map.  You can delete a target by clicking on it and pressing "Delete Selected".  You can change the marker base name and number at any time to help organize your targets.  When you are finished making target lists press "Done" to return to the main page.

Mission Requests

From the main page press "New mission request" to create a new mission request.  This will bring up a page to describe your mission.  At the bottom, you enable the target lists to be covered by this mission.

Review Pictures

After a mission is flown the pictures are made available in this map page.  Use the check-boxes to turn specific mission photo sets on or off.  The pictures are resampled down to 1024x768 and roughly located and sized using GPS information captured during the mission.  To get the full-resolution image: click on the pin, right-click on the link, and select "Open Link in new tab" or "Open Link in new window".  In either case the full 4416x3312 image is loaded.  You can use the zoom feature of your web browser to click and expand a specific area.
