Data Processing Compatibility

The DroneDeploy Map Engine lets you upload and process your imagery from any UAV setup. Once the data has been processed, you will also be able to make use of all the additional DroneDeploy functionality (such as sharing, annotations, and analysis).

Using Map Engine does not require any app - just data.

Data requirements:

All images should be in JPG format
All images must have latitude, longitude and altitude in the GPS EXIF data
All images should be facing the area of interest
All images should have significant overlap (more than 60% side and frontlap, 75% for agricultural or homogeneous imagery)
There must be at least 10 images

To begin, please see How to Process Existing Datasets.

eBee RTK

Your high accuracy eBee RTK data is compatible with DroneDeploy! Capture your imagery using eMotion, and then upload the dataset directly to DroneDeploy.com using the instructions here.

Data Capture Compatibility

If you are flying one of the drones listed below, you can use the DroneDeploy mobile app to plan your flights and capture your data.

DJI Camera Compatibility

The DroneDeploy mobile app is compatible with the standard cameras on all models listed above. A couple of quick notes:

X5 Camera

We recommend a lens calibration for best results.

Non-DJI cameras

DroneDeploy is now able to control supported DJI drones without a DJI camera, but it won't be able to initiate image capture. For example, you could create a DroneDeploy mission for a Phantom 4 with a RedEdge camera, but you would need to trigger image capture externally.

Initial Setup for DJI Drones

Please see here to set up for your first flight.
