DroneDeploy announced the release of Live Map, which it says allows a drone operator to create real-time maps in the field with their iOS device.

The company says users can plan a flight, take off, and see maps render on-screen during flight without the need for internet or cell connection. Customers can get an aerial view of their jobsite, field, or project in seconds, enabling them to make real-time decisions, says DroneDeply.

“Live Map is really the re-imagining of drone mapping. There’s no SD cards, no uploads and no waiting,” says Mike Winn, CEO of DroneDeploy. “Now our customers, from across any industry, can get the data they need, immediately providing the instant insights and enabling them to make real-time decisions right in the field."

By leveraging the latest devices, state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms, and instant cloud-syncing across devices, DroneDeploy says users can create consumable maps and share them with collaborators without going back to the office. If deeper analysis is necessary, users can also create higher-resolution 2D maps from the same flight data.
