    Under the Image Properties dialogue, there is a drop down option where one can Adjust Image Altitudes. One can currently  then Adjust using:  (1) Elevation service or (2) Digital Elevation Model. But as many drone users make use of DJI drones, and the image altitudes are based off the altitude of take off site and flight altitude, hence it would be great if you could add a third option, the ability to adjust using a fixed altitude so that one does not need to create fixed altitude elevation rasters and import them as a digital elevation models. Do see David Schwab's post for more information (Drone2Map: How to adjust image altitude in EXIF metadata from DJI Drones ). This workflow works wonderfully but can be easily simplified with some code.

     

    In addition, it would also be really great if Drone2Map could lookup the Relative Altitude from image's EXIF properties to display under the Image Information dialogue box.  

     

    Thank you.
