What Do I Need to Start Mapping?

Welcome to DroneDeploy, the easiest and fastest solution to build aerial maps and models!

You can think of our service as being two components:
1) Flight automation and data capture
Customers flying DJI drones can capture imagery using the DroneDeploy app. This will ensure appropriate coverage and overlap of imagery.

2) Data processing and analysis
This is done seamlessly for users doing #1 above, or directly using our Map Engine to process any drone imagery that contains geotags.
