eBee and Swinglet CAM Drones for Aerial Mapping
The eBee is a professional mapping tool. It is an easy-to-use, fully autonomous minidrone (96 cm/37.8 inch wingspan, less than 700 g/1.5 lbs). The eBee has a flight time of up to 45 minutes, allowing coverage of areas of up to 1,000 hectares, or nearly 2,500 acres, in a single flight at down to 5 cm precision. This drone is a turnkey solution and includes all the accessories required for operation, as well as the control and monitoring software eMotion 2 and senseFly’s image processing software Postflight Terra 3D-EB. Esri technology enables drone users to share and analyze their acquired data. Just after the flight, senseFly’s Postflight Terra 3D software allows the automated generation of a georeferenced orthomosaic and digital elevation model at centimeter accuracy, which can be directly imported into ArcGIS.
