Reality Capture Package to Automate Drone Data
May 26, 2017 – DJI, the world’s leading maker of unmanned aircraft systems, and Skycatch, the leading enterprise drone cloud software platform continue to expand their partnership with the recent launch of their 3D aerial mapping bundle, the Reality Capture Package. Featuring the latest DJI Phantom 4 Pro and Skycatch Pro subscription, the all-inclusive package comes with everything you need to create, share, and analyze high-resolution orthomaps and 3D models.
“Delivering a cutting-edge out-of-the-box experience has always been part of DJI’s DNA,” said Jan Gasparic, Head of Enterprise Marketing, DJI. “The Phantom 4 Pro, combined with Skycatch’s expertise in enterprise software, provides the ultimate aerial mapping tool for any company or drone operator.”
The Phantom 4 Pro provides a powerful aerial imaging system with a 20MP 1” sensor and mechanical shutter, making it ideal for capturing high quality image data required in making it industrial applications like construction and mining. Skycatch software automates flights for drones to autonomously capture images, and then process them into orthomaps and 3D models, complete with a suite of analytical tools.
The comprehensive package allows users to export their data into a variety of outputs, including Contour maps, Digital Terrain Models, Digital Surface Models, and PDFs. Users can measure volumes and overlay CAD plans on orthomaps, which, along with point clouds and 3D meshes, can also be exported into any software such as Autodesk Civil3D and Navisworks, as well as ArcGIS.
Skycatch Founder & CEO Christian Sanz said “Skycatch was the first to build tools to meet the high-standards of enterprise clients from day one. We recognized DJI’s leadership in creating the gold standard of aerial photography systems, and we teamed up to extend our technology to the world’s most popular drones so that any operator in any environment can harness the power of 3D drone data.”
The Reality Capture Package is available for sale all over the world through the DJI Online Store.
Skycatch creates industrial strength products, services, and solutions to power the most complex projects on the planet. Our mission is to capture the world’s data and create visual intelligence to help people operate faster, safer, and smarter than ever before.
