Support for the Latest DJI Drones is Here
You asked, and we delivered. We are excited to announce that we now support DJI’s latest drones including the Phantom 4 Pro V2, Mavic Air, and M210 + M210 RTK. Please note that the RTK geotagging is not supported in this release. For a full look at our supported drones, visit our updated support docs.
Annotation Reports Just Got Better
Check out the new and improved annotation report in the reports section of your exports tab. The report now includes link sharing & printing, surface area & distance, separate tables for each annotation type (distance, location, area, volume), and the ability to brand your report. This feature is only available for trial and paid customers. Create your first annotation report today.
Introducing DroneDeploy’s New 3D Viewer
Our 3D viewer got a big upgrade. 3D Models are now more responsive, and viewable in higher resolution. The new viewer also allows you to explore larger data sets on desktop. Stay tuned for more updates on the mobile release and what this viewer means for the future.
Extend Your Analysis with Surface Area Measurements
We’ve improved our measurement tools to include surface area. When you make an area measurement, you’ll now see two numbers on the sidebar — Area, referencing flat area, and Surface Area. You can also find both of these measurements in your annotation reports. Area measurements are available to Pro and Business customers.
View High-Resolution Map Overlays on Your Desktop
DroneDeploy now supports vector overlays. This allows you to maintain the resolution of an overlay when you zoom in and explore your map. The next time you’re comparing your project to plans, you can do so with clear, accurate overlays no matter the level of detail. Overlays are available to all All Business & Enterprise customers.
