Calibrate Elevation Data for More Precise Maps

In the past, you may have found your map’s elevation data confusing or difficult to understand because it was on the point of takeoff. Our newest tool makes it easier than ever to calibrate elevation data for more precise maps. With the new elevation calibration tool, you can adjust all elevation data in a map based on a known elevation point — and interpret elevation data relative to mean sea level (MSL), a 0,0 point on a project, or another familiar frame of reference.

Calibrate your map’s elevation using a know elevation point.

Export Maps at Maximum Resolution

All paid DroneDeploy customers can now export maps in maximum resolution*. This enables you to get the resolution and level of detail you need for any project. Your maps have never looked better!

Select your desired export resolution.

Export LAS Point Clouds in your Preferred Coordinate System

You can now export LAS point clouds in your preferred projection and decimate them so that they can reduce the file size to be more manageable in other software. This feature makes it easy to import DroneDeploy data into Civil 3D, Recap, and other 3D design software.

Export LAS point cloud files in your desired projection.
