Announcing DroneDeploy’s holiday mapping contest winner
It’s the time of the year where we all express gratitude and spread holiday cheer. This season, we’re especially grateful for all our mappers. You’ve helped us reach a new and important milestone: mapping over 25 million acres. And your feedback has contributed to some of the newest improvements to our product like 3D & Auto Flight Mode, and improved offline mapping,
We couldn’t be where we are today without you all. And we’d like to say thank you for firing up your birds and flying with us all around the world.
To celebrate, we invited you to participate in our holiday mapping contest, Mapsgiving. We wanted to see who could make the most impressive map over the Thanksgiving holiday.
After more than two dozen submissions and some difficult decision-making, we’re excited to announce the winner of our first contest: Oceans Unmanned, an organization focused on preserving coastal environments. Their map of the California Coastline was crisp, clear, and demonstrated the remarkable capabilities of drone mapping.
In second place, we have a crystal clear map of Crystal Lake in Montana by Vigilante Drones, a drone service business committed to customer satisfaction.
Third place? We have none other than Northern Illinois Vertical Data’s map of “turkey habitat”, in true spirit of Thanksgiving.
If you missed out this round, don’t worry, there will be plenty more contests to come. We’d like to thank everyone who participated in Mapsgiving and we look forward to seeing more of your mapping adventures.
