Have you recently upgraded your DroneDeploy subscription?
If you have recently upgraded your DroneDeploy subscription, your maps will likely not have the export formats available to your new subscription tier automatically. Please reach out to [email protected] for reprocessing any maps that need upgraded export file formats.
By default, most exports are generated using the Web Mercator projection (EPSG: 3857). This is great for importing into web mapping systems such as Google Earth or Mapbox.
We also make exports available in the most common global spherical coordinate system: WGS84 (EPSG: 4326). This coordinate system is commonly used for more traditional "desktop" mapping tools.
If you require a custom EPSG code such as State Plane Coordinate System or Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM), contact our support team to inquire about our Business and Enterprise accounts with custom EPSG support. [email protected]
Choosing between WGS84 and Web Mercator
When you specify Web Mercator, your export is projected in WGS84 EPSG: 3857. This is a version of WGS84 (EPSG: 4326) that is optimized for web viewing. If you'd like to view your files on your website, Google Earth, or something similar, choose this option. If you're using the files in ArcGIS or something similar, choose WGS84.
Exporting Contours in Correct Intervals
When exporting contours users should use the appropriate EPSG code associated with the units they want their data in. For example, if the EPSG code's vertical units are in meters, one should export in meters. Likewise, if the EPSG code's units are in feet the user should export contours in feet. Not doing so may result in exports with the incorrect contour units.
To change the units to meters or feet you can change the units on your account through "Preferences".
