UAS are everywhere, and it takes all types of technology to defeat them

The drone buzzed over U.S. ground troops in southern Syria. It was big, about the size of a Predator, and it was armed. Without warning, it fired. The munition “hit dirt,” a Pentagon spokesman later told reporters, and a U.S. aircraft shot the UAV down. But the incident, along with a similar shootdown two weeks later, are […]

DJI Unveils Zenmuse X7 Camera for 6K Aerial Video

It wasn’t that long ago that we were complaining about a lack of innovation in the consumer drone space. With the main revelations in the second half of 2017 revolving around old consumer drones being painted black (we’re looking at you DJI and Parrot), that was probably fair enough. But that complaint came with a […]

Introducing 3 New Site Scan Features

Today, we’re excited to share introduce new updates to Site Scan. These updates help Site Scan fit even more seamlessly with your existing workflows and help you get actionable insights from your drone data, making it easy for you to get actionable insights from your drone data. Here’s what’s new:

1. Enhanced PDF Exports

Overlaid PDF design file on an orthomosaic

Exporting PDFs of your drone maps is one of Site Scan’s most popular features. Today, it gets even better: we’ve added two new overlay options to your PDF exports.

First, you can view ground control points on your exported map, so you can easily locate them when out in the field.

Second, if you want to use our PDF Overlay feature to view your design files in Site Scan, you can now export those overlaid files as well, with the click of a button.

2. Improved Elevation Model

We’ve added a legend to the elevation model, making it easy for you to see what elevation range each color corresponds with. This helps take the elevation model one step further, giving you detailed information to help you grade and prepare your jobsite.

As one of our customers from Arcadis, a global engineering consultancy, said: “I find the elevation model helpful for understanding drainage and runoff areas. With Site Scan, we can get this type of information much faster and with far greater detail than a traditional survey.”

3. Intuitive GCP Workflow

Lightning, the Site Scan ground control point workflow, is 5X faster than alternative processes. Today, we’re making it even easier to use: Site Scan now displays the orthomosaic in the georeferencing workflow, making it simple for you to quickly find and tag GCPs and process them in the cloud. This is especially helpful for the teams who have one person setting GCPs and flying the drone, and another person back at the office georeferencing and processing the data—now, regardless of whether you were out in the field or not, it’s easy to find your GCPs by referring to an up-to-date orthomosaic of your jobsite.
