1. App Screenshot:

Scanifly software allows you to upload photos from your favorite flight planning app, like Pix4D, DroneDeploy and DJI Ground Station pro. Below is a screenshot from the Pix4D application. Scanifly does not endorse any of these particular apps, but they do work well for our users for Commercial flights. The key is finding an application that is compatible with the model of drone you are using and that you are comfortable with.
