DroneDeploy Announces 1 Million Acres of Drone Data

DroneDeploy, a Silicon Valley tech company that develops software for commercial drones, announced today a milestone of 1 million acres of drone data and have launched their software for free to anyone in over 120 countries.

CEO Mike Winn explains: “Historically, most drone publicity has been related to one-off examples, or what might happen. What we’re announcing today is hundreds of real people, getting real results with DroneDeploy. 40% of our user’s data is related to agriculture, enabling farmers to get a bird’s eye view of their fields,” says Winn. The data, collected and processed with DroneDeploy, has enabled their customers to identify pests, water damage, irrigation issues, and determine the right time to harvest.

DroneDeploy is also announcing what it believes to be the world’s longest commercial drone map. Over 114,000 images were processed from 869 flights over Mexican highways in a project executed by DroneDeploy mapper Sergio Serrato of Skylab Industries. “DroneDeploy’s scalability is what enabled us to complete this data collection operation on time,” recounts Serrato. “We undertook a huge project to create a highly accurate map of 1,000 kilometers of highway. Our first image processing solution just couldn’t handle the huge volume of data. We’re happy we found DroneDeploy.”

DroneDeploy was built with the ability to scale—supporting large fleets of drones. “Now that our technology’s scalability has been proven, we migrate out of beta,” informs Nick Pilkington, CTO. “Today, we’re launching our service with a free tier, enabling anyone to produce high-quality maps and 3D models.”

DroneDeploy’s free mobile app is currently available for Android devices through Google Play and lets users automate mapping flights for drones manufactured by DJI. An iOS app is slated for release in the coming weeks.
