Drone Data Compatible types - What data types do we accept?

Welcome to our knowledge base! If you're wondering which drone data types are compatible with our platform, you're in the right place. Our platform is designed to be versatile and accommodate a variety of drone data formats. Below, we'll delve into each of these supported data types and provide a brief overview of their characteristics.

  • Images (.jpg, .jpeg)

    • JPEG (or JPG) is a commonly used method of lossy compression for digital images. It's a standard format for many digital cameras and drones.

    • Compatibility

      • Our platform fully supports the upload, display, and analysis of JPG images. Whether it's a single image or a series from a drone survey, you can seamlessly integrate them into our system.

  • Videos (.mp4, .mov)

    • .mp4: A digital multimedia format most commonly used to store video and audio, but it can also be used to store other data such as subtitles and still images.

    • .mov: Apple's QuickTime multimedia file format.

    • .SRT File is a file that contains flight path coordinates generated by popular UAV manufacturer DJI.

      • Compatibility:

        • Videos captured during drone flights, whether in .mp4 or .mov format, can be uploaded and played back on our platform. This allows for dynamic visual assessments and presentations.

  • Orthomosaic (.tiff / .tif files)

    • An orthomosaic is a detailed, accurate photo representation of an area, created out of many photos that have been stitched together and geometrically corrected ("orthorectified") so that it is as accurate as a map.

    • Compatibility

      • Our platform supports .tiff and .tif files, enabling users to upload and visualize high-resolution orthomosaics generated by drone, satellite, or manned aircraft. Orthomosaics are generally used for scientific applications for various analyses, from land cover assessments to urban planning.

  • Point Clouds (.las)

    • A point cloud is a collection of data points defined by a given coordinates system. In a 3D coordinates system, for example, a point cloud may define the shape of some real or created physical system.

    • Compatibility

      • The .las format, commonly used for storing lidar (and other) point cloud data, is fully supported on our platform. Users can upload, visualize, and analyze dense point clouds, extracting valuable spatial information.

  • 3D Models (Cesium tiles)

    • Cesium tiles represent a format for streaming and rendering 3D content, especially in web environments. These tiles can represent the geometry and appearance of objects in a 3D scene.

    • Compatibility

      • Our platform is optimized to handle Cesium tiles, allowing users to upload and interact with intricate 3D models. This is particularly useful for visualizing structures, terrains, or any 3D representation captured or derived from drone data.


Our platform is designed with versatility in mind, accommodating a wide range of drone data types. Whether you're working with high-resolution images, dynamic videos, detailed orthomosaics, dense point clouds, or interactive 3D models, you can be assured of seamless compatibility and a smooth user experience. If you have further questions or need assistance with any specific data type, please reach out to our support team.
