Esri Releases Drone2Map for ArcGIS

Redlands, Calif., Feb. 24, 2016Drone2Map for ArcGIS, released today by Esri, turns raw still imagery from drones into professional 2D and 3D imagery products. The desktop app will mean that affordable imagery is available on demand for land analysis, infrastructure inspection, and monitoring events such as natural disasters and environmental changes.

"Drones are an emerging technology with the potential to revolutionize how we work across many industries," said Esri president Jack Dangermond, who announced the beta release of Drone2Map for ArcGIS at the Esri Federal GIS Conference today in Washington, DC. "We built Drone2Map for ArcGIS to give people the ability to process, use, and share imagery—all within ArcGIS."

Imagery products that can be created with Drone2Map for ArcGIS include orthomosaics, digital surface models, and 3D point clouds and meshes. The app detects camera and sensor parameters and then intelligently applies appropriate defaults.

In the field, Drone2Map for ArcGIS offers rapid imagery processing, so users can make sure they've captured everything they need right away, avoiding costly return trips. The imagery can be used immediately in ArcGIS to provide a clear, accurate picture of any asset or area for mapping, analysis, and decision making.

The photogrammetry engine in Drone2Map for ArcGIS is powered by Pix4D, an industry leader in professional image processing software.

Free trials of Drone2Map for ArcGIS are available through a beta program. Visit esri.com/drone2map.
