Upload speeds

I have used DD for the last 7 years. I fly the same 18 fields 10 times every year. For the last 2 years I have been able to upload a file in 23 minutes. The file is always around 360 photos. This year it is taking 60 minutes. My internet speeds are the same as last year. I am not sure what is going on. Is DD slower, computer slower or internet slower. Is anybody else having longer uploads times?

Hi Ken, I have started a new drone services business in Vancouver Canada. What kind of fields are you scanning 10 times a year and what kind of reports are you producing if you don’t mind me asking?

Thank you in advance,

Hi Ken,

On our end we’ve seen the median upload time for a map between 300 and 400 images has improved 50% from 12mins to 8mins over the past year, so the opposite of what you are seeing.

Just want to confirm:

  1. Are you seeing the same number of images captured?
  2. Are your “internet speed test” results about the same y/y?


Thanks for replying. Today I downloaded 7 maps and it went much better. I am not for sure why. I continue to clean my computer for useless files and for whatever reason it went well.
