Export flight plan to shapefile?

DroneDeployers: is there any way to export the flight box from Drone Deploy to a shapefile for sharing? Since I made the flight plan in the software, rather than an external GIS, I can’t seem to get the box exported. Thoughts?


Hi Jonathan, this feature is not available yet. If more people request it, it will be considered. Thank you and sorry I can’t help more.

Hi Kara

I thin this option will be great to have. Sometimes for presentation purposes, you can export your flight plan and manipulate it to have a nice diagram.

Dronedeploy should consider adding the option to export flight plans soon.

Voting for this, too.

What we do is create the flight plan polygon in another application, and then import that KML or SHP into DD. It’s bass ackwards but works very nicely

This would be a very useful feature for me when I apply for airspace authorization and want to show the FAA what my flight plan is. It would be great for the clients as well.

I would like this feature as well.

Is this feature not available on the business package?

Hi @StevenGourlay,

We currently offer Shapefile and Contour Exports for our Business and Enterprise customers. More info on what features are available for each tier can be found on our Pricing page.

I also suggest taking a look at Shapefile Exports from our support documentation to learn a bit more about this feature, how to use it, and what is available.
