Export API

Access and download existing map data exports

Customers who would like to export and backup all of their maps, either to use in other systems or for compliance reasons, can follow the steps below.

If you have a standard export type that you'd like us to generate for any new map created in your organization, we can assist you with that. Also, if you have a "machine" super user who should have access to all processed maps and exports in your organization, we can enable this for you too.

Send a request to the DroneDeploy Support Team to request a certain type of export to be made available on all your maps, or to designate a "machine" super user.

As exports can often be very large, we recommend recording the plans that have already been downloading, and only looking for and downloading new maps (plans) or exports.
