Drone2Map for ArcGIS version 1.3.1 is available for download from the ArcGIS Marketplace and the Drone2Map for ArcGIS Help Site.


Version 1.3.1 is an important maintenance and quality release that also includes feature enhancements.  Here are some of the highlights:


Classified Point Clouds – Point clouds will now be classified so that points include class codes (for Ground, Vegetation, Building, and Road Surface, as applicable).  A classified point cloud improves visualization as well as analysis when working with the 3D points in LAS or zLAS format.

Ground Control Point (GCP) Viewing – Users can now view GCP photo attachments from file geodatabases as well as hosted feature layers, improving the speed and accuracy of working with GCPs.

Improved Textured Mesh Creation – Better-quality 3D datasets are made possible with the addition of improved capabilities for creating textured meshes.

Additional Camera Support Included – Improved support of imagery from thermal infrared (DJI Zenmuse XT FLIR) and multispectral cameras (Sequoia, Sentera, Micasense) enables greater usage of drone imagery for users in utilities, natural resources, and other markets.


Additional information about other features and improvements can be found in the What’s New documentation.
