The latest progress in the drone industry indicates that the next big challenge will be efficient handling of the thousands of images that drone inspections create.
As a company that helps drone operators optimize their work flow in regard to handling these large amounts of data, Enhanced Visual came to find, that combining software made by two different companies reduced the time they spent organizing and reviewing inspection data by 50%. What they did, was to apply their custom maps from DroneDeploy into Scopito.
An orthomosaic made in DroneDeploy, implemented on a map in Scopito, making the creation and placements of annotations very effective.
So how does this speed up the workflow?
Logan Chernicky from Enhanced Visual explains how applying DroneDeploy maps on Scopito has saved his company time by making things more dynamic:
“Taking advantage of both platforms allows us to present our deliverables like never before. DroneDeploy-maps on Scopito saves us and our clients time; we know exactly what we’re looking at and can monitor changes overtime” he says.

How time becomes money
When asked if combining the attributes of DroneDeploy and Scopito has saved Enhanced Visual money, Logan Chernicky answers:
“Not directly, but it has saved us time, and time is money. We can spend less time organizing the data and more time gathering it, benefiting both Enhanced Visual and our clients.” He estimates that the company has saved 50% of the time spent per inspection due to the use of the two platforms. More precisely, he says: “We can organize our inspection data in ½ of the time, and review the images in ½. That roughly means 5-10 hours saved per inspection, depending on the size.”
How it creates value for inspectors, clients etc.
When it comes to the thing that in the end is the most important to all of us – how we can create more value for our clients and customers – Logan Chernicky explains it this way:
“Scopito displays our geo-referenced images on a map with the direction they were taken. By adding our DroneDeploy maps as the base layer, you can see exactly which part of the infrastructure you are looking at. It makes our services more dynamic as a whole…”(continued here)
Scopito available in DroneDeploy’s App Market
