DroneScout is an aerial data collection and reporting app for DJI Phantom Series drones.

Free App

Overview

DroneScout is an aerial data collection and reporting app for DJI Phantom Series drones. Currently Vision 2 Plus is supported.

DroneScout allows you to define flight paths with waypoints and automatically pilots your aircraft, allowing you to concentrate on capturing photos and videos. Photos and videos are then added to the waypoints in close proximity to where they were captured.

Markup and measurement tools make it easy to mark up your flight path as well as annotate captured photos potential hazards as well as points of interest.

You can also add notes and additional ground photos along with audio and videos recordings.

The captured media stored in the waypoints can then be combined with satellite map, flight data and mark-ups in order to create a report deliverable and viewable to others who have the DroneScout app.

Subscribers of DroneScout Pro can also share data electronically via PDF or HTML.
