The combined technology, resources and expertise from this acquisition are set to create the most complete, feature-rich platform for reality capture – whether from the air, ground, interior or exterior.

“We are thrilled to welcome StructionSite’s team and customers to the DroneDeploy family,” said Mike Winn, CEO and co-founder of DroneDeploy. “Our team is ready to hit the ground running to deliver on something so many of our customers have been asking for: a reality capture platform that is unified and intelligent, but also automated – so they can quickly start to see the benefits of advancements in aerial and ground robotics.”
