Why drone data matters


Drones are democratizing access to imagery and remote-sensing data, enabling government and commercial organizations to deploy and collect highly accurate drone data for a wide range of uses. These applications provide insights that improve business and policy decision-making.

What makes up ArcGIS Drone Collections


ArcGIS Drone Collections is composed of prepackaged configurations of ArcGIS platform products specifically tailored for your drone projects. Choose a desktop, cloud, or enterprise configuration of ArcGIS Online, Drone2Map for ArcGIS, or Site Scan for ArcGIS to collect, process, analyze, and manage your drone data and share it across your organization.

Better data, better decisions

Imagery from drones is becoming a broadly adopted source of remote-sensing data. Drone imagery provides a high-resolution, low-cost, highly repeatable source of data for mapping and operational workflows.

Streamlined workflows

Turn drone-collected data into authoritative images and 3D models to help you see patterns, risks, and changes. Enhanced processing capabilities provide insights to help you enhance staff decision-making and optimize operations. Share data across your organization with open access to portals and web apps that interact with drone flight maps.

Technology that scales as your project grows

Expand the capability of your system on demand as you grow your drone program. Increase capacity and performance, create operational efficiencies, perform larger analytic tasks, and enhance collaboration among key stakeholders.

How it works

Animation of a flight being planned on a computer, then being executed by a drone, then the data being analyzed and shared

Plan and capture

Use up-to-date overlays from ArcGIS to plan flights accurately, then autonomously execute the flight to capture project data using drone of choice.

Process, manage, and analyze

Process drone flight data in desktop applications, then manage and analyze project data.

Disseminate and collaborate

Improve data visualization and communication across key project stakeholders by using ArcGIS Online, web apps, story maps, and dashboards.
