Website Pick: Drone Deploy
Alex Lindsay’s pick of the week on MacBreak Weekly 573 is Drone Deploy. This is a software platform for drone mapping that will capture imagery, process maps & 3D models, and interpret the data. You first draw an outline of the area you’d like to map, and the drone will automatically go up and capture the imagery. It figures out what it needs to do to accomplish it beforehand, and will even tell you how much battery it will require.
After the drone is done, you take all of the photos it captures and upload them to the Drone Deploy website. It will give you a stitched photo of your area, and a little 3D model of it. If you already have a DJI drone, this will integrate with it very well.
