Today’s show is about drone mapping software. Which is the best and most capable software to map a roof?
Our caller for today, Garrett from Ohio is confused with the myriad of mapping software out there. He plans on taking up a roof mapping job and is considering using Pix4D. But, should Garrett opt for Pix4DMapper or Pix4D Cloud? Apart from Pix4D, we also discuss other options like DroneDeploy, Eagleview, and the latest entrant in the market, Skydio 3D Scan.
You will also learn how your final deliverable and acquisition strategy impacts the choice of your mapping software. And we also share some great resources to help you out. Enjoy!
