Creating a project is the first step in the process of creating and analyzing data within DroneDeploy. A project organizes all data associated with a particular project location, and it makes it easy for you to find the data you’re looking for, re-fly the same location, and share project maps and reports.

Your initial project location will be based on the given location of your device. If you would like to change the location, you can either click inside the search bar to search for a location by address, name, or zip code or you can drag the target around the map.

Select 'Create project here' in the middle of your screen when you've found the area you'd like to map.

IMPORTANT! Ensure this project location is accurate to where you plan to fly. This project location cannot be changed once created.


Give your project a new title and click 'Continue'.

Now that the project is created, you are able to create your flight templates. Please refer to the Desktop Flight Planning article for more information on how to create a flight template and adjust the corresponding flight settings.
