How to Measure Volume

It’s insanely fast and easy to use our volume tool from any device. Simply go to your map on DroneDeploy and select the perimeter of the feature (e.g., stockpile) you want to measure. Then click the “Calculate” button to instantly compute the volume.

How to Improve Accuracy

We’ve seen volumetric measurements within 1–2% of professional ground-based laser methods, but the old adage “garbage in, garbage out” still applies. Results can vary based upon image quality and resolution, the perimeter points you select, and other factors. For tips and tricks to help you increase the accuracy of your volumetric analysis, check out our detailed support documentation, which includes a brief how-to video.

Add Volume Capabilities to a Map

The volumetric capability is currently part of all DroneDeploy’s paid plans, including the Pro plan, starting at $99 per month. Learn more about our paid subscription plans or start your free trial today.
