FilmDropDRIn Action

  • Deployable in the field via Snowball Edge

    The AWS Snowball Edge gives us the ability to extend familiar tools to an offline environment - decreasing cognitive overhead and time-to-learn.

  • Users ready to operate in less than 15 minutes

    Designed to teach to an operator in less than 15 minutes, a basic map layout and simple interface allows for extremely rapid response without bells & whistles.

  • Integrate in-situ data from disparate sources

    Flexible basemaps including data from OpenStreetMap and USGS

  • Drone data processing

    Process raw drone imagery into GeoTIFFs and tiles for use in FilmDrop DR map layers Self-contained OpenDroneMap instance can process data in the field, reducing time to analysis

  • Deployable via AWS Cloud

    Take advantage of the deeper processing power of the FilmDrop Core stack

  • Support for offline capabilities and sync

    View tiling & geojson data in offline capacity. Import custom data points, boundaries, and layers offline.

  • Timeline functionality

    Timeline allows for 360 degree “playback” of events for research and retrospectives.
