Knowledge Base Presented By Draganfly “Interactive Mapping Tutorial of Real-World Crime Scene”

At Draganfly, we understand the need to see before you buy in order to enhance your workflows so we’re excited to offer a free, interactive mapping tutorial where you can view the video tutorial and work with the corresponding data set yourself from a real-world mapped crime scene of an illegal poaching incident. You will also receive a free 15-day trial of Pix4Dmapper (free trial only available to first-time users).


Watch and learn how Leila Benmerrouche with Saskatchewan Polytechnic steps you through using Pix4D to increase the level of detail for important features within a scene. Leila does this using an efficient Pix4D workflow to accurately merge aerial UAV imagery with terrestrial imagery taken with any camera (even your smartphone!) at ground level. High quality data, where it matters most.


This tutorial will enhance the workflow for professionals in any industry using Pix4D, including:

  • Collision Reconstruction
  • Crime Scene Forensics
  • Environmental Investigations
  • Construction Project Management
  • Inspections
  • Surveying & Mapping
  • Mining
  • And Much More!


You will discover more about the proven workflow for crime scene processing that contributed to one of the first-ever North American based UAV-assisted convictions of a wildlife poaching incident.


A little back story…


Saskatchewan Polytechnic partnered with Draganfly Innovations Inc. in the spring of 2017 and together they applied for and received an Engage Grant through the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC). The team pursued research using a UAV to get a 3D snapshot of a conservation crime scene. Using UAVs and automated data collection, researchers and law enforcement are able to recreate and essentially preserve crime scenes so they can be measured and observed without disturbing the area.


“Partnering with Draganfly Innovations Inc. has enabled us the opportunity to complete projects that may forever alter the manner in which crime scenes are processed” – David Halstead, MSc, Senior Researcher, NRT Programs, Saskatchewan Polytechnic
