Using this guide, you can easily sync your 3D and 2D Scan Imagery from Skydio to your DroneDeploy dashboard. This functionality allows you to leverage the best of the two systems: automated flight capture in Skydio and processing and modeling in DroneDeploy. 

This functionality is available for our Teams and Enterprise subscribers.

Skydio Extend is Skydio's new integration platform. For more information about Skydio Extend, please visit this page.


To Enable Sync

  1. To sync Skydio Scans, the organization administrator must enter the Skydio Sync API Token on the Upload page.

    That key can be found in the Skydio Customer Portal:

  2. Once the token is validated, the user can click the "Sync Scans" button and choose which Skydio scans to sync to the project.


Syncing Scans

  1. You can create a DroneDeploy project at the location of the Skydio scan, or you can just navigate to an existing project for which you have Skydio data.

  2. Select "Explore" from the top of the screen.

  3. If Skydio scans are available in a 10-km radius, they will appear here. If no scans are available in this radius, the modal will be empty.


4. Select scans you want to sync to DroneDeploy and then select "Sync Scans".

5. Once images are available to DroneDeploy, the map will begin processing. When the map is completed, an email will be sent to the project members.
