DJI and DroneDeploy Collaborate to Enhance Thermal Mapping

United States: World’s leading maker of drones and camera technology DJI, and the leading cloud software platform for commercial drones DroneDeploy have announced thermal mapping solution at the Intersolar North America 2016. These companies have united to increase the effectiveness of the inspection and solar panel installation through drone thermal imagery capture and analytics.

According to Ryan Tong, Director of marketing at DJI, the company is excited to partner with DroneDeploy to get more out of their DJI drones. He further stated that as the roof inspection has not changed during the last decade, introduction of safe and accurate drone based 3D models to replace survey wheels and measuring tapes is a great achievement of the industry as well as company.

According to the recent report published by TechSci Research, “Global Commercial Drone Market By Drone Type (Rotary Blade Drone, Fix Wing Drone, Hybrid Drone & Nano Drone), By Application (Mapping, Surveying & Photography, Precision Agriculture, etc.), By Region, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2015 - 2021”, the global market for commercial drone is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 27% during 2016-2021. In 2015, North America and Europe cumulatively accounted for a market share of more than 60% in the global commercial drone market. With US being the largest market for commercial drones, the civil aviation body of the US, Federal Aviation Administration, has constantly been making amendments in policies and regulations for use of commercial drones in the country. Moreover, frequent modifications in the regulatory policies by European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) over the last few years has also been positively influencing the drone industry.

Techsci Research believes that this partnership between DJI and DroneDeploy is another advancement in the commercial drone technology, which is poised to open up a new era of opportunities for businesses and government organizations looking to use drone for their work.
