Adding Additional Images to a Map

There may be situations where you would like to add more images to your existing DroneDeploy map. For example:

  • If you've used the Point of Interest tool in DJI GO to capture additional​ images for 3D modeling.
  • If you have captured additional imagery to improve your map quality.
  • If you've accidentally forgotten to combine all images into one folder prior to uploading.

Following the steps below will restart processing of your map. Please note that the maximum number of images per map varies according to your DroneDeploy plan.

This is not automatically added to all DroneDeploy accounts - please send a request to support@dronedeploy.com to request the Exit Beta feature outlined in step 2.

1. Download images to your computer

Duplicate File Names

If you are combining flights, be sure that the file names are not the same as your previous set of images. For example, DJI drones automatically restart numbering at 1000 images.

2. Open your DroneDeploy.com dashboard

Be sure to navigate to a web browser rather than the DroneDeploy mobile app. Select Exit Beta from the panel at the left. This is not automatically added to all DroneDeploy accounts - please send a request to support@dronedeploy.com to request this be enabled.

Then, click on the drop-down​ menu to the right of the Map button of your completed map.

3. Select the new photos to upload.

Select the folder that contains your images. Select all images and click Open

4. Check geotags

The new dataset will be shown in the size and count of images in the upper left.

New images will be placed on the map in green.

The images already within the map will be shown in gray.

5. Select `Finish`

This will start the uploading process.

You will see this confirmation when the upload completes.

Once you've completed the steps above, your map will restart processing with the full new images included. You will receive a new email when the map completes.
