Esri business partner 3DR has released a free app for iOS that interfaces with ArcGIS Online, allowing Esri users to view GIS content from ArcGIS Online to assist with the drone flight planning.
The Site Scan – Esri Edition app provides mission planning and flight control for a number of leading drones to optimize drone collections for use in Drone2Map or Ortho Mapping in ArcGIS Pro. This release is compatible with the DJI Phantom 4 Pro, DJI M200, DJI M210, DJI Inspire 2, DJI Mavic Pro, or Yuneec H520-G, as well as the 3DR Solo.
The Site Scan – Esri Edition app allows users to take advantage of substantial amounts of publicly accessible data, as well as custom data layers from the user’s ArcGIS Online account, as base and reference data for mission planning.
Site Scan – Esri Edition is free to everyone with an ArcGIS Online account. The app is available on iTunes at http://esriurl.com/SSEE, and will be available soon in the Esri Marketplace.
