Release Notes – Drone Harmony General Web App

October 2023 Release

Images tab Feature

1. We have added a new panel on the right side of the web app, called images.

2. Users can upload DJI drone-made images (at the moment only DJI images are supported, images made with other drones or cameras will fail to process).

3. Images are processed on the server and the Exif metadata is extracted from them (location of the photo, camera exposure, etc). In addition, a high-quality thumbnail is made.

4. If there is a log file that corresponds to the images – the images are also grouped into folders according to the mission name.

5. Images are displayed on the map and in 3d view in the location where they were taken.

6. Users can download the images, view the images, and view the image metadata.

August 2022 Release

  • Added four new flight plans (2 linear + 2 terrains linear)
  • Made improvements in flight functionality
  • Added round polygon tool

May 2022 Release

  • Added username/password login option

December 2021 Release

  1. Introducing new camera profiles and lenses:
    • A camera and a lens profile now represent each sensor setup.
    • You can define your own custom camera profiles (limited to drones that support custom cameras)
    • You can add custom lens profiles to cameras (limited to cameras that support custom lenses)
    • The flight planning engine takes the chosen camera and lens profiles into account. So you can plan missions with the newly created profiles.
    • Temporary limitation in DH Mobile: Although you can fly missions with the new profiles, you cannot yet plan flights with the new profiles on the mobile application. However, the upcoming new DH Mobile v2.0 application will support this.
  2. Added flight planning parameters profiles:
    The parameters used in flight planning (e.g. distance, overlap, etc.) can now be stored and managed in custom profiles. This allows you to easily repeat missions from a previous flight day with the same settings.
  3. Many improvements for the user interface and experience (UI/UX):
    • Improved dialogs with grid arrangements: Added bulk operations and inline editing functionality
    • Improved UX for text and number boxes
    • More improvements will be released in January

November 2021 Release

  • Fully customizable panorama missions. Convert any waypoint(s) into panorama points. Works in tandem with DH Mobile app version 1.17.3 and up
  • Geofences and no-fly zones support. Geo zones define areas where the mission should be contained. No-fly zones are the opposite – they define areas the drone should not enter. Missions that violate the constraints are shown in red, and a warning is shown in the mission info panel.
  • Flight logs upload (from version 1.17.3 of DH Mobile app) to the cloud and review executed flights from the DH Web app. Users can download the logs, and the image metadata CSV file, review the trajectory and locations of the collected images and access local storage (disc or SD card) to review the captured high-res images.
