I thought you all might be interested in this contest my company is putting on: We’re looking for DJI pilots to try building a 3D map at Hivemapper.com. All you need to do is fly around any area you want to map and upload your video. It can be anything from a quick orbit around your house to covering an entire neighborhood with a waypoint planning app.

You can enter to win in 2 categories. $3,000 for building the largest map and 2 $1000 prizes will be awarded for “coolest map.” Check out out the blog post for full details and rules:

March Mapness 2020

Hivemapper accounts are free and the contest will run until April 30, 2020. You probably won’t win with a simple orbit around your house (unless it’s a really, really cool house) but it’s one of the easiest ways to get started if you’re interested in using your drone to create 3D maps. We also have a ton of guides if you really want to get into it and go for the prize:


If anybody has any questions about the contest or mapping with Hivemapper in general, feel free to ask here. We're excited to see the sort of maps the Phantom Pilot's community will build! We're also very excited for any sort of feedback, so whether you've tried 3D mapping before or you are completely new to the space, give us a try and let us know what you think!
