Delta County, Colorado agriculture has the benefit of over 300 reservoirs on the Grand Mesa, many of which supply irrigation to the variety of crops grown. This time of year, the reservoirs are being drawn down providing an excellent opportunity to map and determine reservoir capacities.
We had the opportunity to pack up our UTV with the DJI Phantom 3 advanced drone, gear, lunch and head on out to the Leroux Creek area of the Mesa. It is…
We appreciate all the feedback and feature requests over the last couple of months! Thank you
You can now process up to 150 images from DJI sensors for free on your Windows 10 desktop. We've also added NDVI calculations and a load of other new…

DroneMapper is very pleased to announce that RAPID for DJI is available for download and testing on limited imagery data sets at no cost to the user. RAPID will provide scaled DEMs and orthomosaics using up to 75 images for a scene. Results are available in near real…Continue
A great heatmap showing the global UAV hot spots! The data is a random sampling of 30,000 geo-tagged images from our database. Pretty cool!…
We have released a test / alpha version of the 2D GCP generation tool for Windows. You may experience a bug or two but overall it should be functional. Let us know if you have problems working with the 2D GCP utility or have additional feature requests.
Essentially, you want to create a list of images that the GCP appear in and load them into the tool. The images…
Subset of Tetra Cam ADC Imagery
We recently received a data collection courtesy of David Dvorak using the Tetra Cam ADC Multi-spectral image sensor. DroneMapper processed 189 geo-tagged 3.2 mega pixel images into geo-referenced Orthomosaic, DEM, DSM and Point Clouds…Continue
Geo-referenced NDVI of Urban Area produced with a single NIR-G-B Canon PowerShot 300 ELPH HS from maxmax.com.…
Thanks to Pteryx for this great data set! In order to generate a geo-referenced NDVI / EVI / EVI2 Vegetation Index we need to fly the area of interest (AOI) with a visible (RGB) and full spectrum (RGB+NIR) camera. Once the RGB and RGB+NIR images are…Continue

Amazing day in Colorado for a photogrammetry mission with Falcon UAV over Red Rocks Amphitheater. At 6,450 feet above sea level, Red Rocks Park is a unique transitional zone where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains. Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a geological phenomenon – the only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheatre in the world. Some of the rock…

Back in May we processed an interesting data set from Easter Island, Chile at 30 cm / px GSD. Kim Anh Hoang from the Easter Island Statue Project used the 30 cm Orthomosaic and DEM to produce a 3D Flyby of Rano Raraku and an EISP…
November 15, 2012; The Pinery Project
In a collaboration between DroneMapper, Falcon UAV, CompassData, Inc. and The Pinery Country Club we collectively demonstrated accurate geo-spatial mapping (in 3 dimensions) of a reasonably large area using affordable technology - UAV, consumer camera and ground control. First, a little bit about our partners:
DroneMapper has just been notified by the city of Denver, Colorado that is has been selected as a top-10 finalist in a business…Continue
It has been a while since our last update! The biggest news is we now process up to 25 geo-tagged images into high resolution Orthomosaics, DEM, DSM and 3D Models for free. The site now only accepts geo-tagged images and will only process imagery with the correct EXIF…Continue
Great video of Rano Raraku 3D via Easter Island Statue Project [eisp.org]. DEM and Orthomosaic generation by DroneMapper.com using imagery from Trimble/Gatewing UAV. 140 Images, 30cm GSD final. Cloud processing time was around 1 hour. Animation in ArcScene by Kim Anh Hoang.
Video 3D RR Flyby…Continue
I don't know where to begin! This last 4 months has been amazing and very challenging. :) I couldn't have made it this far without the help the beta testers, Pteryx UAV (Krzysztof Bosak), Jeff Taylor, Irvin Stafford, Michael Oborne, Martin R and others. Thank you guys. As of now, we have a full feature set for the launch of the site around June 1st (maybe sooner). I don't have GCP support yet, but that is coming when I can get some additional…Continue
