Esri Site Scan for ArcGIS

Site Scan for ArcGIS is an end-to-end, cloud-based drone mapping software for imagery collection, processing, and analysis.

Esri Site Scan UX on computer

Why use Esri Site Scan?

The Site Scan app—part of a larger ArcGIS ecosystem of analytical and sharing tools—allows you to securely process imagery in a scalable cloud environment to create high-quality 2D and 3D products for immediate sharing throughout your organization on any device.

With the Esri Site Scan Manager app, you can maximize the potential of high-accuracy WingtraOne data via measurement and analysis tools to get the answers you need, whenever you need them.

As an Esri Site Scan user, you get unlimited processing and drone data storage without extra hardware investment. Simply upload your geotagged RGB, multispectral or thermal  imagery and get started. The app includes a “Checkpoint” feature to verify accuracy and an administrative dashboard for managing users and project permissions, available to users with administrator privileges. 

Site Scan Manager is a comprehensive solution providing drone data management and storage as well as web-based analysis features, such as 2D and 3D data viewers, and measurement and annotations tools.

Exceptional 3D reconstruction

Wingtra recommends Esri Site Scan especially for processing its oblique datasets. The powerful post-processing software produces exceptionally high quality meshes featuring crisp facades and details. Site Scan for ArcGIS, powered by the SURE meshing engine, provides very high resolution and scalable 3D meshes using the I3S format. This allows for responsive data streaming online viewing of the data on the browser and even on mobile devices.
The Esri Site Scan and ArcGIS digital ecosystem enables further analysis, sharing and collaboration with stakeholders.

Seamless workflow with ArcGIS

Customers can publish their drone data from Site Scan to ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Enterprise, and ArcGIS Enterprise behind a firewall. Access to this robust ArcGIS environment enables further analysis, sharing and collaboration with stakeholders, and even engagement with the community.
An example of this can be found in our California wildfires use case, where fire damage maps were shared with the communities affected.

Drone data outputs—such as orthomosaics, DTMs, DSMs, point clouds, and textured meshes—are stored in the cloud, and can be viewed and published to ArcGIS Online and shared within your organization or with the public. 

Site Scan data can be used by a variety of Esri apps built on top of ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise. Customers can combine their imagery with existing GIS data, overlay it with data from the ArcGIS Living Atlas, and present it in web applications.

Organizations, both large and small, can leverage these seamless workflows within the ArcGIS platform

  • Access an array of analytics and sharing tools
  • Overlay high-resolution base map orthomosaics during data collection and mark them up in ArcGIS Field Maps 
  • Compare time-based imagery through a configurable application using ArcGIS Web AppBuilder 
  • Enable public transparency in local government by sharing drone photo locations in ArcGIS Dashboards
  • Engage the public in the progress of a construction project using ArcGIS Hub
  • Overlay drone imagery on wildfire extent data from the ArcGIS Living Atlas

Esri and WingtraOne: bringing high-quality, large-scale 2D and 3D drone data into a powerful GIS ecosystem

WingtraOne GEN II and Esri Site Scan UX

Wingtra’s VTOL drone pushes the edge of what commercial drones can offer organizations with dependable broad coverage and high-accuracy. Partnering with Esri expands the possibilities of what can be achieved with the data collected by WingtraOne. Specifically, the ArcGIS platform provides exceptional processing and analytical tools using a continuously-evolving network of apps and tools.

Wingtra + Esri help industries in:

Maintain the best qualities of your large-area, high-accuracy drone data through to the final product and share these via the dynamic ArcGIS platform.Capture large sites efficiently and process them with Site Scan’s ground control point feature for accuracy and checkpoints for accuracy verification.


Perform regular flights over construction sites and process in the cloud so all stakeholders have access to the most recent 2D and 3D data. Overlay CAD data and perform QA/QC on the drone data directly in the browser. Create volumetric reports and generate cut-fill maps based on 3D surface models.
