7.8 KML Spraying

An XML-based format called Keyhole Markup Language (KML) is used to store geographic information and related material. Access to the most recent geographic data is essential due to the ongoing change in land use. It is becoming increasingly important to be able to access a KML file on both desktop and mobile devices when comparing the many flight planning software solutions. This helps drone pilots by providing them with the most pertinent information to ensure a mission is completed effectively and without expensive mistakes.
