Minimize Processing Time for Drone Mapping Applications


Minimize Processing Time for Drone Mapping Applications

Commercial drone operators traditionally spend more time processing images by back office applications than they do with mission preparation, traveling to the job site and finally flying the survey mission. The popular 2D/3D mapping and modeling apps require high powered Intel i7 desktops with Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) to render professional quality results that can be monetized. Processing times can be as little as a few hours or stretch to days with the change of a render parameter and as the number of frames increase from a few hundred images to thousands of images captured on larger acreages.

DroneData® releases a suite of Engines utilizing dedicated servers with GPU to minimize processing times for drone mapping applications, increase efficiency and utilization of drone operators back office applications and provide a robust GPU application development platform for programmers.

Render Engine server dramatically reduces processing times over the best performing Intel i7 GPU enabled desktops allowing drone operators to deliver and monetize their jobs quicker. Operators and users may have multiple processing sessions as well as third party applications active concurrently.

The Back Office Engine is ideal for hosting mission critical third party applications and all Windows productivity apps and also provides limited rendering capability.

The Application Development Engine is a cost effective programming platform for drone software which is developed to execute on GPU enabled hardware.

The DroneData family of Engines are Always On 24 x 7 and billed on a zero-term, simple monthly subscription thus eliminating by the minute unpredictable trailing invoices. The Engine servers enable all team users concurrent access from anywhere by any device as well as eliminating the upfront expense of custom-built GPU desktops.

The DroneData suite of Engines  utilize the familiar Windows desktop environment eliminating continuous user retraining generally required with command line based virtual instances

See for yourself, the DroneData suite of Engines are available for a free trial.
