Hello DroneDeploy Community,

I hope you’re all doing well. I’m reaching out to tap into the collective knowledge and experience of this wonderful community. Our team is gearing up for a significant agricultural mapping project covering around 8000 hectares of land, and we’re currently in the process of selecting a suitable drone for the task.

Given the scope of our project, we’re looking for a drone that offers a balance between flight endurance, camera quality, and compatibility with the DroneDeploy platform. We’ve heard great things about the accuracy and efficiency that DroneDeploy brings to mapping projects, and we want to ensure that we choose a drone that complements these capabilities effectively.

If any of you have worked on similar large-scale agricultural mapping projects or have recommendations for drones that would excel in such scenarios, we would greatly appreciate your insights. Whether it’s personal experience or information you’ve gathered, your input could make a significant impact on the success of our project.

Additionally, if you could share any tips or best practices for optimizing the mapping process over such a vast area, we would be more than grateful.

Thank you in advance for your time and expertise. We’re looking forward to hearing from the amazing community here at DroneDeploy.

Best regards,

How often do you do something of this size? What is your turnaround timeframe?

First thing to note is that you don’t have to use a drone that is supported for flight with DroneDeploy. You can fly with the native flight program and manually upload the images.
