Maps Made Easy provides an easy to follow workflow wizard to lead users in creating a wide array of outputs. Your images have information embedded in them that let us know where they were taken. This allows us to work our magic and provide you with georeferenced results.

The new Manual Georeferencing workflow is available for BETA testing. Details

Aerial Mapping Workflow
Create orthophoto maps, DEMs (DSMs), NDVI imagery and 3D models. All files listed below are created by default.


Maps Made Easy EXIF Geotagged Images

Georeferenced w/Camera GPS
Upload up to 5,000 images

Use your camera's built-in GPS and EXIF tags to align your imagery to the world. Sample



Create Map

Use Map Pilot for DJI to collect the most accurate data possible.
  • Terrain Awareness - Maintain a consistent AGL altitude.
  • No Fly Zone Control - Know where you can fly and do it safely.
  • Linear Flight Planning - Fly narrow corridors like roads, rivers and pipelines.
  • Import Maps Made Easy Terrain Data - Use your Maps Made Easy creations to keep up with changes on the ground.
  • Active Connection Mapping - Take the most accurate data possible.
  • Connectionless Mapping - Ensure your images get taken by letting the aircraft trigger the camera.
