This resource describes the vehicles, cameras, and lenses that are supported by the Site Scan Flight app. This also includes the latest test firmware version and supplemental camera configuration information.

 

Important Note: This resource applies to the Site Scan Flight app only.

Site Scan Manager (web-app) supports processing of virtually any georeferenced drone image.

If your drone is not supported by the Flight app, you may still use the manufacturer's application to capture images and upload them for processing and analysis in Site Scan.
