Exporting in Other Projection Systems

Learn how to export your data using other projection systems.

Accessing Custom Projection Exports

Custom EPSG projections are available on the Business and Enterprise subscriptions.

Sites and surveys are often in a specific or custom coordinate system to make measurements more accurate and comply with standards set for the sites.

DroneDeploy allows users to export their drone data using a custom coordinate system based on EPSG codes. Let's learn how to do it:

1. Find your EPSG Code

EPSG codes are unique identifiers describing the desired projection; the EPSG code for almost any projection can be found at the Spatial Reference Organization's website.

  • Choose a location using the search bar in the upper right:
  • Select from the suggested codes based on your area and units.

Make note of the EPSG code corresponding to your map.

2. Select the Layer to Export

Select the layer you would like to export and click Export

4. Select the EPSG code

Taking into account the EPSG from the Step 1, you can either look for that specific code in the drop-down list of suggested EPSG codes or click on the Other EPSG Code option and type the EPSG code:
