Smart Uploader

How does it work? 

Native functionality that takes a user's complete set of aerial data and automatically sorts it into the appropriate plans for upload and processing in DroneDeploy. Virtually eliminates the need for users to manually sort their imagery into categories such as map plans, Panos, videos, photo plans, etc. before uploading and processing it in DroneDeploy. 

This is the only Smart Uploader in the reality capture industry! 

  • Automatic media sorting using the plan detection algorithm
  • All aerial data to be uploaded is sorted and summarized by plan type for easy visualization and user confirmation
  • Fly multiple plans and automatically upload all that are flown into a project

 

1. Drag and drop all the files and the Smart Uploader will sort them into the plans automatically. Supported plan types: 

- Vertical plans

- Map Plans (and Map Plans with Ground Control Point files) 

- Progress photo 

- Progress video 

- Panoramas

After the media is sorted, review the data and the user can select which media (plans) to upload.

*Note locations of the video are automatically selected as being at the center of the project. After the upload video markers will be placed according to the location

 

2. Click upload and continue. Working plans will be uploaded in a parallel thread.

What happens if you have multiple photo plans in one upload? Does it create the breakout of folders?

If the plan is flown using DroneDeploy, yes. TBD on non-DroneDeploy flights

 

What is out of scope for v1?

1. Upload recovery- users must keep their tab alive for the duration of their upload

2. Smart 360 Walkthrough detection - .mp4 files will be assumed to be individual Progress Video Plans. Walkthroughs are not included in v1. Please uploaded from the Walkthrough app or camera SD card.
