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.

Data Processing Compatibility

The DroneDeploy Map Engine lets you upload and process your imagery from any UAV setup with embedded geotags. 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
