Supported Drones and Devices

1. Description

Here you will find more information on all of the supported drones, devices, and sensor file formats within Aether.

2. Drones

2.1 General

Aether supports all drones taking still pictures with RGB sensors. Images can be either georeferenced with coordinates included in the metadata or not georeferenced but accompanied by a CSV file containing the coordinates of the images.

For specialty sensors (multispectral, thermal, LiDAR) reference Aether's current compatibility list.

2.2 Delair UX11

Delair UX11 users benefit from seamless integration with Aether. It is possible to upload the raw dataset from the UX11 drone straight to Aether.

For more specific information on supported sensors for photogrammetry, see Supported Sensors for Photogrammetry.

3.2 Supported Thermal Sensors

Aether currently supports the following Long-Wave Infra-Red (LWIR) Thermal Sensors series*:

  • FLIR Tau 2
  • FLIR Vue Pro
  • FLIR Vue Pro R

3.3 LiDAR & Laser Scanners

Aether supports .las Point Clouds to standards 1.2 & 1.4, obtained from airborne LiDARs or ground-based laser scanners raw data.

4. Hyperspectral Data

Hyperspectral (ENVI Format) datasets are supported.

5. Handheld & Ground Sensors

Aether also supports RGB georeferenced datasets obtained from land-based and handheld devices, such as DSLR cameras or smartphones. Adding single or several pictures from the ground to an existing aerial project (in its annotations) is also possible as a fieldwork reporting task.
