In March, we announced that DroneDeploy users had mapped 2 million acres, a milestone that took 16 months to reach. Now just 4 months later our users have more than doubled the mapped area in a quarter of the time.
We hope you enjoy these industry trends based on usage data, showing how drone adoption is evolving.
Drone Service Providers Are Specializing This increase seems to reflect not only increased adoption of drones in-house within specific industries, but also increased specialization among service providers, to the point that they identify more with the industry they serve. increase in the share of maps made by users from identified industries, as opposed to self-identified drone service providers.
More than Just a Pretty Picture There’s immense value in simply having an aerial view of your job site, but many businesses are going a step further. Increasingly, companies are leveraging cloud-based maps as powerful tools for measurement and collabora2on.
Integrating Drone Data Into Workflows In recent months, the number of DroneDeploy maps exported has exploded. Leading businesses are extracting deeper value from drone maps and 3D models by importing them into their respective industry-standard tools and combining them with other datasets.
