Announcing the first, second, and third place winners of DroneDeploy’s 12 Days of Maps contest

Now that we’re (mostly) recovered from our holiday-induced food slumbers, we’re back to share some exciting news about our latest contest—12 Days of Maps.

Before we announce the winners, we’d like to take a moment to express our gratitude to all of you who participated and give an extra special shoutout to Airdata UAV for partnering with us on the grand prize.

From first time mappers to seasoned experts, we were blown away by maps made by all skill levels. With so many to choose from, you can bet it was difficult for our team to decide which one was the best.

Without further ado, can we get a drumroll, please?

First Place

In first place, winning the grand prize of a DroneDeploy t-shirt, 3D printed model, and a one-year subscription to Airdata UAV’s HD 360 Pro Plan is Chris Ken of Project xK with his stunning 3D model of a church in Switzerland. (Can you believe this was one of Chris’s first maps with DroneDeploy?)

Second Place

Not too far behind him was HadMcw, a company in New Zealand that uses DroneDeploy to monitor where land work is needed.

Third Place

Sens Technologhy takes the cake for third place with their map of Phaltan, a town in India. Look at this urban density!

Thank you again to all of our participants for making 12 Days of Maps a success. If you didn’t win this round, don’t worry. We will have more opportunities to win again in the future. So, stay tuned and keep sharing your maps with us. You never know what you might get.
