DroneDeploy Partners with DJI to Bring a Turnkey Mapping Solution to the Construction Industry
Manage, Measure and Communicate Site Progress with the DroneDeploy & DJI Construction Mapping Package
Drones are transforming construction workflows by enabling teams to efficiently track projects, report site progress, and improve safety for workers around the world. Today, we’re excited to announce the next step in our mission to make the skies accessible for the construction industry as it scales drone operations in 2017 and beyond. Introducing the DroneDeploy & DJI Construction Mapping Package.
Available now from DJI’s online store, the DroneDeploy & DJI Construction Mapping Package includes a one-year Pro or Business software subscription to the DroneDeploy platform, the DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone and other drone accessories.
“DJI Phantom series drones have set the standard for businesses that need an easy and affordable way to capture detailed aerial data from their sites, and DroneDeploy has built a powerful platform for taking data from DJI’s aerial platforms and turning them into actionable data for businesses. By bringing these two platforms together as the Construction Mapping Package, the construction industry has a turnkey mapping solution to introduce or scale out their drone operations.” — Jan Gasparic, Head of Enterprise Marketing at DJI
Save Time and Reduce Risk with Sharable Drone Maps and 3D Models
With DroneDeploy’s platform and powerful third-party tools and integrations available within the DroneDeploy interface, your team is able to deploy drones to:
- Generate accurate site surveys with ground control points in a fraction of the time required with traditional survey methods
- Efficiently collect aerial data to improve quality control, manage assets and reduce risk on the job site
- Quickly create weekly drone maps of jobsites to track progress and instantly share data between teams on desktop and mobile devices
- Make smarter quality assurance decisions by combining building information models (BIM) with high-resolution point clouds of actual site conditions
- Directly integrate drone maps and point clouds with Autodesk, Procore, Box and other industry-standard software
DroneDeploy’s software allows for intuitive automated flight so you can fly the site, then view and analyze high-resolution maps and 3D models within the same day. Team members can then share the data and analysis with others for improved communication. Even bring maps into the field on mobile devices to improve on-site inspections with annotated notes, photos, measurements, and more.
“This partnership with DJI paves the way for greater drone adoption across the construction industry.” — Mike Winn, CEO and Co-Founder of DroneDeploy
Bring Design Plans to Life with High-Resolution Point Clouds of Actual Site Conditions
General Contractor Brasfield & Gorrie, LLC is currently leveraging DJI drones powered by the DroneDeploy platform to monitor site progress, communicate with key stakeholders, and increase ROI with the use of drone-generated 3D models.
“Using DroneDeploy, we’ve generated point clouds so detailed they’ve been mistaken for video,” said Hunter Cole, Virtual Design Coordinator at Brasfield & Gorrie. “But unlike a video, I can get the volume of any material stockpile on that site, I can make any linear measurement, and I can overlay the drone-generated point cloud over 3D BIM model, line it up exactly and see very quickly what’s been built versus the design intent,” said Hunter Cole, Virtual Design Coordinator at Brasfield & Gorrie.
