DroneDeploy begins drag-and-drop PPK processing for DJI drones
DroneDeploy customers flying their DJI drones at large sites, or in remote areas, can now create high-accuracy maps without relying on RTK connectivity. The drone management company has launched a new unified reality capture platform, following the acquisition of StructionSite, and it comes with support for drag-and-drop PPK processing for all DJI RTK-equipped drones.
Like RTK, PPK is also a GPS corrections technology that increases the precision of geotagged image data. So, if you’re flying outside of an RTK coverage area or somewhere with poor internet connectivity, the new DroneDeploy platform will automatically apply corrections to your images, resulting in a highly accurate map. You can check out a step-by-step guide on how this functionality works here.
Further, the new platform empowers you to analyze the terrain of your worksite more accurately. DroneDeploy now uses machine learning image segmentation in the processing pipeline to automatically…
