Stockpile Report

Have more questions? Submit a request
The Stockpile Report on DroneDeploy lets you more quickly and easily measure and report upon the total amount of different types of materials that you have in stockpiles on-site, as well as create printable or sharable PDF documents of your stockpiles, including the material they are made of and the value of the amount of material within your map.

We’ve developed these tools with input from customers like you, and we welcome your continued feedback to help make them even better. Once you’ve tried these tools, we would really appreciate it if you would complete this brief survey to let us know what you think of the new tools.

How Can I Access It?
Stockpile Reports are currently available for all Individual, Advanced, Teams, and Enterprise users at no additional cost.

If you are after more information about measuring stockpiles, here's a great guide: Volume Measurement with DroneDeploy. 

Create Materials

First, identify the materials that you have on-site. This material may be a general type of material (for example, topsoil, gravel or sand) or a very specific product type. These materials will be used to organize and summarize your stockpiles and calculate the total mass and value of your inventory. You can create a material by making a volume measurement clicking the "Material" drop-down and selecting "New Material."

Then select "New Material"...

Then, enter the name, density and value of the material. A color for that material will be selected by default, but you can click on the color to pick a different one or to not associate a specific color with that material.

The material you've created will then be associated with that volume measurement. You can repeat the process to add more materials.

Warning: Editing A Material Will Affect Measurements On Volumes That Reference It
Organization administrators and the user who created the material can edit the details of the material. However, the user who created the material can only edit it if it has not been assigned to an annotation already. Please be aware that this will affect the color, mass and value calculations of any volume measurements that reference it.

Select A Material For Each Stockpile

Once you have created a material, you can reuse it over and over again to label other stockpiles at that location or at other locations. Every material you have created will appear in the materials drop-down list and you can select it when making your volume measurement. For example, since we've already created the Gravel material, it appears in the material drop-down for all volume measurements.

When you're done, all stockpiles on your map should be labeled with the appropriate material.

Tips For Making Many Stockpile Measurements

If you're managing tens or hundreds of stockpiles, carefully defining the perimeter of each one every time you fly might become repetitive and tedious. Fortunately, we have tools to help you automate the process. You can install the "Copy Annotations" app in the App Market and use it to copy volume and other annotations that you've already made on a previous map to a new map of the same location. This works especially well if your stockpiles mostly stay in the same place, but you can also adjust the perimeter of the volume annotations once you've copied them.

You can also consider using our Stockpile AI tool (available for Enterprise customers) that automatically detects stockpile perimeters and allows you to select them with a single click.

Reports are Customizable!
Remember, all our reports can be edited! Click on the data point you would like to edit, make your changes, and it will save on your report.

Volumes that have been assigned materials will appear in a new stockpile report, which summarizes the total amount and value of each type of material on site for a particular map date. To get to the report, go to the "Report" tab

and select "Stockpile Report".

From there, you can view, print, share or export the raw data from your report.

The report includes a map of the project with stockpiles represented in different colors based upon their material.

It also contains a summary table showing the total volume, mass and value of each material on site.

Individual maps and tables for each material type, like this one showing "Fine Sand", are also included.

If you want to export the raw values from your report (to format them in your custom report or input them into other systems), you can use the "CSV" button to download them.

Allow the Report to Load Before Downloading
You must wait until your Stockpile Report loads completely before clicking the CSV button. We would advise a solid 10-15 second wait time.
