With the popularity of of UAVs in commercial applications increasing, more and more companies are regularly coming across the question of what is the best way to process drone data. There are lots of different options out there, and this article will describe the three major categories of how to process data, and the pros and cons of each one. Overall, there is no universal best answer. The best way to process data depends on the needs of each individual company.

The right drone data processing depends on your business

There are positives and negatives to every processing method. However, if you have a need for high accuracy, then expert data processing like that provided by Aerotas is the best choice. This is the best bet for high accuracy applications such as land surveying and civil engineering. If turnaround time and cost are more important, then automated solutions will work best. This would apply to projects like roof inspections or job site monitoring. Lastly, if for whatever reason you can’t use either of the above, then self-processing might be the right choice. This might be for sensitive government use, or very remote data processing.

Ultimately, the most important takeaway from this is to understand your needs, and pick a processing solution that works for you. One size doesn’t fit all, so make sure to choose correctly for your job!
