Crowddroning by GLOBHE is connected to thousands of drone pilots in 80+ countries who collect image data on demand when you place a data request. Once the image data is collected it is stitched together into digital maps (if the map option is selected by the client, raw data is also available) based on drone images instead of satellite images. This provides our end-users with more updated information since most satellite images lag in time between 16 days and 2 years depending on where in the world you are, making sudden onset changes such as natural disasters, hard to detect in a timely manner through satellites. Each drone photo is geotagged which makes overlay on satellite maps possible to visualize location and changes over time. Drone photos are also of much higher image resolution (down to 1 cm compared to 100 cm for most satellite images) which makes detailed analysis possible such as identifying infrastructural failures, crop damage, or potential malaria mosquito breeding sites. Last but not least we export our drone maps/the finished product in different formats such as 2D maps/orthomosaics, 3D maps, Elevation maps, etc depending on the insights the clients are looking for before we send a download link to the client. What was previously a lengthy and complex process, involving multiple suppliers, is now reduced to the simplicity of ordering an Uber!
The price starts from USD 1/mb, depending on the size of the area, what kind of drone data is requested, and how much our local drone pilots charge for the mission. When you request drone data we will get back to you with a price quote for you to approve before sending out a drone pilot to capture your data.
It depends on a few different factors such as pilot availability, size of the area requested, kind of drone data requested, and varying data uploading times depending on where in the world the data is being uploaded from. When you request drone data we will get back to you with a time estimation as part of your quote.
Clients will receive a download link where they can download the data requested as jpg, tif and/or zip folder as per their drone data request eg. Raw data/photos = jpg, 2D Map = tif. More information is to be found here.
