Skyward and Pix4D: Integration of administration and mapping

Skyward and Pix4D have announced that the drone management platform will now offer drone mapping and modeling with Pix4D (Skyward Mapping and Modeling) support.

For both companies, this is a great step towards getting one step closer to a seamless end-to-end solution for enterprise customers. With the Skyward platform, customers can manage their drone program – from aircraft and batteries to flight planning and permits to mission operations. With the new integration, customers can create 2D maps and 3D images from the same interface. “Companies and drone pilots can now plan flights, get permission to fly with LAANC in controlled airspace, fly with Skyward’s InFlight ground control station, and process data with Pix4D – all from the Skyward platform.”

“Skyward has given customers tools to access airspace, plan and fly. Now they can deliver business-ready data without leaving Skyward,” said Mariah Scott, President of Skyward. “Construction, energy, utility and public sector companies can achieve even more ROI from their drone programs when they combine Skyward’s drone management platform with Pix4D’s market-leading photogrammetry tools.”

Turn drone data into business-ready results

With Skyward Mapping & Modeling, supported by Pix4D, customers can create, view, measure and export 2D orthomosaic maps and photogrammetric 3D models directly from the Skyward web app. With the processing power of Pix4D, the market leader in photogrammetry software technology, Skyward customers can receive business-ready data sets via a seamless plan, fly and process workflow.

“Companies are looking to scale their drone operations and transform their businesses with better data and faster insight. Skyward’s platform, along with the power of Pix4D, provides a powerful, comprehensive solution, ”said Christopher Cressy, Pix4D’s North American general manager.

Skyward will host a webinar on June 8th at 2 p.m. ET. Companies and commercial operators can test Skyward Mapping & Modeling free of charge for 30 days.
