About this app

Measure Ground Control is an “all in one” drone deployment and data management software solution for UAV pilots, small businesses and large enterprises. Create a mission, plan a flight, check airspace, and process your image data in a variety of formats, such as high-quality orthomosaics, 3D maps and 3D mesh, thermal imagery, digital surface models (DSM), and many more. Manage your pilots and drone fleet, create and reuse flight plans, store and maintain fly sites, build flight schedules, run safety checklists and log flight data, as well as create customized data reports.

With the ability to navigate seamlessly between the web and mobile applications, Measure Ground Control features LAANC airspace authorization with built-in Airmap technology, so you can fly any airspace safely and FAA compliant. Process and create data products with our advanced photogrammetry and image processing featuring an integrated Pix4D toolkit, or inspect and annotate image data using our custom Scopito integration, all within the convenience of a single software application.

Measure Ground Control offers multiple flight modes including Panorama, Spotlight, POI, Profile, Trace, and Tripod. Additional features can be activated for Enterprise users. Built for universal DJI compatibility.

Okay i just worked out why the images were not on the SD card. The drone settings were to save images onto internal memory-the other awesome thing was, i could connect to drone internal memory via the app to extract images onto my phone. . This is an an amazing app. No nilly nellying around, once flight checks are done it does the job for you. It is simple and straight forward, got me the results I needed for what I wanted to do. 11/10 to the developers!!

Me and MGC were meant to be I guess. Began having catastrophic issues with DD the day before MGC was launched and was looking for a new capture app and stumbled upon this one. So far it has been GREAT. I really like you can get LAANC authorization from in the app as well as the usual stuff you'd expect as far as mission planning and so forth. I do hope they add an orbit type mission template for 3D models but it's new so I'm trying to be patient lol. If you're on the fence give it a try!
