DroneDeploy, the California based cloud software platform for commercial drones, today announced a new release of its app that fully integrates its mapping experience across desktops and smartphones. Users can not only autonomously fly and capture images, but can also analyze their drone imagery directly from within the DroneDeploy app which is available for both Android and iOS.
“Automating drone flight and image capture is critical, but only half the story,” said Mike Winn, CEO and cofounder, DroneDeploy. “The real value is in deriving insights from the data. By creating an integrated app which includes both drone flight and data analysis we’re helping our users better extract insights while in the field, giving them a competitive advantage.” The new integrated drone mapping experience enables faster and smoother transitions between drone flight and data analysis.
The app includes enhanced flight planning features, such as the ability to rotate the flight direction and easily select the starting waypoint when continuing previous missions. It also includes an entirely new central dashboard designed to help users quickly sort through their aerial maps.
The DroneDeploy iOS and Android app, which include live stream First Person View (FPV) support DJI’s Phantom 3 Pro, Phantom 3 Advanced, Inspire 1 and Inspire 1 Pro, and Matrice 100. Operators of nonDJI drones can use the DroneDeploy Map Engine to process geotagged images from any drone manufacturer and leverage the redesigned app to view their drone maps and 3D models in the field.
