The DroneDeploy Flight App now supports automated Terrain Awareness. With this change, DroneDeploy plans in 3D, automatically adapting drone altitude to follow the contours of the ground and maintain a constant height. This makes it much easier to fly near hills, and to capture accurate maps in high-resolution.
Every DroneDeploy pilot will have access to DroneDeploy’s automated, easy-to-use Terrain Awareness. With Terrain Awareness enabled, your drone will anticipate most terrain changes and make automated adjustments - adding another layer of safety to your drone operations.
Whether you are an agronomist mapping a large field, in forestry taking inventory over hilly terrain or a site manager at a quarry, Terrain Awareness will help improve map quality with consistent resolution. This is the new standard for drone flight.

DroneDeploy’s new Inspection Workflow has allowed customers to reduce risk and promote a culture of quality and accountability on every job site. In our last release, we made it easy to conduct remote inspections within the context of your 3D model. We also made it easy for your field and office teams to collaborate to fix any issue using the same map and model.
Now your teams can quickly communicate through the new comments stream in the Inspection Workflow. Once you have evaluated your site in 3D, tagged any issues, and added a summary; you can now add comments to each issue and @mention team members that are active on the project. Then all users involved in the issue resolution will also get an up-to-date view of the activity on each issue through email notifications.
