ArcGIS Drone2Map Pricing


ArcGIS Drone2Map is the desktop app for your GIS drone mapping needs. Choose the license that fits your requirements.

ArcGIS Drone2Map Standard enables users to easily process overlapping nadir images to create accurate 2D orthomosaics, digital surface models, and digital terrain models. If you need 3D outputs, Drone2Map Advanced includes everything in Drone2Map Standard and adds the ability to create 3D reality mapping products such as point clouds and textured meshes from nadir and oblique images, all processed with the powerful SURE for ArcGIS.

As Drone2Map is a premium application, either license type requires the Creator user type or the GIS Professional user type. Drone2Map fully integrates with the ArcGIS system and will work with either ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise.

Frequently asked questions

Does Drone2Map work only with a specific type of drone?

ArcGIS Drone2Map is designed to be generic for use with all drones. Data can be collected by any flight control app, but we recommend using the Site Scan Flight LE app. When collecting data from a drone not supported by Site Scan Flight LE, there are two important details to know:

  • The drone must collect latitude, longitude, and altitude. Most commercially available drones automatically add this information to the image metadata (the Exif) header of each image file), and this is read by Drone2Map.
  • Drone2Map must also have information about the camera—specifically, the lens focal length and sensor size. Nearly all modern cameras are supported in an existing camera database and this database is updated frequently, so any new cameras not currently in the database should be supported within a short time frame. If your camera is not included in the database, Drone2Map will attempt to create the required information from information in the Exif header.
