Flight Planning

Flight Planning

1: Selecting area to be mapped and can be done using eMotion and DroneDeploy software.

Drone Survey in Kenya

Drone Survey

2: A drone is launched after flight planning to fly and capture the images within AoI defined.

Drone Data Processing

3: Employs Pix4D, DroneDeploy & Agisoft among other software to process drone images.



Drones have become proven technology in the sphere of aerial mapping and survey. We use various drones for our survey and mapping:

  • Drones
  • Pix4D Mapper Software


    Our drone image processing workflows leverages on proprietary and open source software solutions in the market such as:

    • Pix4D Mapper & Cloud
    • DroneDeploy Cloud
    • Agisoft Metashape
    • Web OpenDroneMap etc..

  • Software
  • Orbital Drone Pilot


    We are endowed with KCAA licensed UAV and drone pilots who boost with several drone flight hours in various projects we’ve executed.

    • Multi-rotor licensed pilots
    • VTOL licensed pilots
    • Fixed wing licensed pilots
    • Specialized drone pilots

  • Pilots
    • Get right drone

      Every successful drone assignment require a prudent choice of the right drone. You should ask yourself: “Do I require a multi-rotor, a fixed-wing or a VTOL?”

      Flight planning

      Many drone flight planning software exist in the UAV market. Different drones are compatible with specific software e.g. DroneDeploy, Pix4D field etc.

      KCAA licensed pilots

      In Kenya, the enacted UAS Act of 2020 requires that before flying a drone within the Kenyan airspace, one must be a trained and licensed pilot by KCAA.

      Processing software

      We utilise various drone image processing software to perform image analysis. We use DroneDeploy, Pix4D, Agisoft and WebODM among others.

      Drone deliverables

      After drone image processing, some of the outputs include Orthomosaics, point clouds, digital elevation, terrain and surface models (DEM/DTM/DSM) etc.
