The Skyward drone management software platform has been integrated with Pix4D, allowing users to turn drone-gathered data into 2D maps and 3D models. In addition to planning flights, receiving approval to fly in controlled airspace with LAANC, and flying drones with Skyward’s InFlight ground control station, enterprises and drone pilots can now take advantage of Pix4D functionality to process data without having to leave the Skyward platform.
The new Pix4D-powered Skyward Mapping & Modeling functionality enables users to create, view, measure, and export 2D orthomosaic maps and 3D photogrammetric models from within Skyward’s web app. With this new capability, Skyward customers can get business-ready data sets through a seamless “plan, fly and process” workflow.
Mariah Scott, President of Skyward, commented: “Skyward has been bringing our customers tools to access airspace, plan, and fly — now they can produce business-ready data deliverables without leaving Skyward. Enterprises in construction, energy and utilities, and the public sector can get even more ROI out of their drone programs when combining Skyward’s drone management platform with Pix4D’s market-leading photogrammetry tools.”
Christopher Cressy, Pix4D Managing Director for North America, said: “Enterprises are seeking to scale their drone operations and transform their businesses with better data and faster time to insight. Skyward’s platform, along with the power of Pix4D, delivers a powerful, comprehensive solution.”
