BricsCAD DroneDeploy integration

Drone technology allows for safe mapping of terrains and property, producing high-quality surveying results. Whether you are a surveying, land developer, construction engineer, or a full-service A&E firm, utilizing the drones for terrain captures can decrease project time, reduce overall costs, and provide planning and development resources with additional ground images and aerial views of landscapes

The functionality included in DroneDeploy services and applications allows the drone users to build projects and analyze the information returned by flights that collect landscape images and additional data

However, if you want to quickly and easily incorporate your drone project images into your CAD drawings or maps, ‘Spatial Manager for BricsCAD’ provides the technology to import DroneDeploy maps as Dynamic Background Maps in BricsCAD. As you can see from the video, the process is carried out in two steps:

The first one involves exporting the map from DroneDeploy to a Background Map Definition file (*.bmd) using the free ‘Spatial Manager Background Map’ app, which you will find in the DroneDeploy App Market

Then you can import the *.bmd as a Dynamic Background Map in ‘Spatial Manager for BricsCAD’ and modify its properties, such as the Name or Group in which you want to place the new map, according to your interests

Note also that the App allows you to export several maps simultaneously to a single *.bmd file, which in turn will result in several new Background Maps when imported into ‘Spatial Manager’

Finally, just remind you that you can show the Dynamic Background Map either in front (“Bring map to front” option) or behind the objects in your drawing or map
