How can I join the Fieldscanner Beta?
The Fieldscanner beta is an experimental new tool, and is being rolled out gradually over the weeks following April 18th. To try the Fieldscanner beta, either sign up for DroneDeploy and wait for us to notify you that Fieldscanner is available, or fill out our beta application form to request earlier access. Once Fieldscanner has been enabled in your account, you will see a “Fieldscanner” toggle on the flight planning screen.
Is Fieldscanner compatible with my drone and mobile device?
At this time, Fieldscanner is compatible with all iOS devices and most DJI drones Phantom 3 Advanced/Pro and above. For best results, we strongly recommend newer DJI drones (Mavic, P4Pro, Inspire 2, Matrice 200), and newer iOS devices (including iPhone 6, iPad Air2, iPad Mini 4). Unfortunately, Fieldscanner will not be supported on Android devices this growing season.
Do I need to be a paid customer to try Fieldscanner?
Once the full beta roll-out is complete, all paid plans will include Fieldscanner and new users will be able to access Fieldscanner as part of their 30-day free trial. Fieldscanner will not be available on the free plan of DroneDeploy.
What analysis tools can be used with a Fieldscan?
A Fieldscan is a 2D map, so analysis tools like volume measurement that require elevation data will not work unless you upload flight imagery to process a regular high-resolution map. All other analysis tools are available when viewing the Fieldscan on a connected device, but are not accessible when viewing the Fieldscan offline.
Will I need to refly to process a high-resolution map or capture a full 3D Model?
No! Fieldscanner does not interfere with your normal mapping workflow. You will still capture images during flight that you can upload to DroneDeploy to create high-res maps and 3D models.
