Improved Flight Plans for Small Areas

We have improved flight for map plans less than 5 acres in size, making it easier to produce a great map. Our new layout gives you symmetrical, edge-to-edge coverage so that your datasets include enough images to produce high-quality maps — no matter how small the area.

Export Maps in Any Format with Our Enterprise APIs

Our powerful enterprise APIs have always made it possible to extend DroneDeploy into your existing workflow. Our latest update takes this one step further. You can now export maps in any format via the Export API — making it easier than ever to automatically backup maps or integrate data with your existing tools. Whether you need to export a point cloud, an orthomosaic tiff, or a contour map, DroneDeploy has you covered. APIs are available to all enterprise users.

DroneDeploy UI Gets a New Look and Feel

We always strive for simplicity and function in our product design. The new look improves our layout and simplifies iconography while making things easier to read across devices. It also reduces the chances of making any mistakes when adjusting flight settings like altitude, sidelap, and frontlap.

Our flight planning UI got an upgrade—now with improved function, icons, and readability

Better Map Sharing and Collaboration

Earlier this year, we released folders for better project management and team collaboration. We have now improved the messaging around folders to make it clear when moving a map may cause others in your organization to lose access. If a member of your organization does lose access, they will receive an email notification telling them who is responsible should they need to regain access in the future.

3D Mode and Fieldscanner Get an Update

If you haven’t stepped into DroneDeploy Labs to take a look at our latest experimental features, you might want to consider it. DroneDeploy Labs is where we release some of our newest beta features for testing, and is available under the “Settings” tab in the DroneDeploy dashboard. It’s the go-to place for the latest innovations in drone mapping.
