PrecisionHawk, an Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) company specializing in end-to-end aerial data solutions, seeks to be a leader in managing aerial data. To bring the best into the industry, PrecisionHawk created DataMapper, an exclusive tool for processing and analyzing data collected by UAVs.
Drones are a hot topic these days, and PrecisionHawk sees a vast potential for drones in a variety of industries, namely agriculture and emergency response. According to the company, usable data collected from UAV platforms is far more valuable than the UAV itself, so a revolutionary software design accessible to non-technical users was greatly needed. PrecisionHawk envisioned a data platform to automate the movement of aerial data from collection and processing to digital management and analysis. Webonise partnered with PrecisionHawk in 2013 to provide such a solution.
Developed on Ruby on Rails, DataMapper is a cloud-based application that gives anyone the ability to upload, store, process and share their aerial image data. To create DataMapper, Webonise made use of Java, JavaFX and FXML with a Spring framework, Jersey, Apache Tomcat and Maven. There are two applications: one is a desktop application where users can upload surveys on the server, while the other is a web application, capable of displaying all the surveys along with their status. Here are a few highlighted capabilities of DataMapper:
DataMapper is the realization of PrecisionHawk’s vision to better serve its customers. By putting customer needs first, they arrived at a solution that makes management of aerial data not only easy but also actionable. DataMapper transforms data into useful information that helps in making wise, real-time business decisions. After carefully listening to PrecisionHawk’s vision, Webonise took action and delivered. The result? An easy and secure end-to-end enterprise data solution that offers users the ability to process and analyze data without breaking the bank.
