Question *

What device do I need to use UgCS?
  • For UgCS desktop software a computer running Windows/macOS is needed. All flight planning is done on the computer.
  • To connect DJI drones to UgCS an Android mobile device or DJI Smart Controller is needed to run UgCS for DJI - the free mobile app.
Is UgCS web-based or do I need to install it?
UgCS is not web based as we know how difficult it is to get an internet connection in remote regions where most of our customers are flying drones. That's why UgCS is installed locally on your computer and can run without an internet connection.
Where do I download UgCS?
Is an internet connection required to use UgCS?
UgCS gives the ability to cache maps and elevation for offline use. So an internet connection is only required for first activation of the license and caching maps of a selected regions. After that you can use UgCS in the most remote regions on Earth without the need to connect to the internet connecting - with the drone using only local network (which can be setup using a router or contemporary mobile device as hotspot).
How do I connect my drone to UgCS?
  • To connecting DJI drones to UgCS you need to have UgCS for DJI mobile app installed on either an Android mobile device or the DJI Smart Controller. The device then needs to be connected to the same local (internet is not required) network as the computer with installed UgCS installed and the drone will automatically appear in UgCS.
  • To connect other supported drones such as Ardu / PX4 - a connection is established over radio telemetry link (with ground radio being connected to the computer over USB) or WiFi (not requiring internet connection).
How can I know if my drone is supported?
Do I need an Android device to fly a DJI drone with UgCS?
To connect a DJI drone to UgCS you will need either an Android mobile device connected to the DJI remote controller (RC) via USB or the DJI Smart Controller.
How can I install UgCS for DJI on DJI Smart Controller?
Is a laptop required in the field to fly with UgCS?
A laptop/computer with installed UgCS is required for flight planning, which can be done either in-field or in the office.
With DJI drones and the free UgCS for DJI mobile app, flights can be saved on the mobile device for offline (i.e. offline from UgCS desktop) use, making it not necessary to take out the laptop in the field.

!!! However, it is still recommended to have the laptop with you in the field in case any modifications or adjustments of the route need to be done.

Is iOS supported for UgCS for DJI?
The development of UgCS for DJI iOS app is currently suspended, meaning - it has only bee tested with UgCS version 4.3 but not later versions. The iOS app most likely could work also with newer versions but some bugs can arise - use at your own risk.
We recommend to use the newest UgCS for DJI Android app.
Does UgCS support LiDAR IMU calibration?
Which LiDAR sensors are supported by UgCS?
Most LiDAR sensors can be used as long as they are carried by a UgCS supported drone. UgCS officially supported LiDAR sensors / manufacturers:
  • DJI L1
  • YellowScan
  • Phoenix LiDAR
  • RIEGL
  • LIDAR USA
  • GeoCue
  • Rock Robotics 
  • GeoSun LIDAR
  • 3DT Scanfly.

Can I import a route from KML/CSV?
In which format can I import DEM/DSM data?
The DEM/DSM terrain elevation data can be imported into UgCS as GeoTIFF (.TIF) format.
Is UgCS available in my language?
  • UgCS is currently available in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Chinese, Russian and Latvian languages. The language can be set in Main Menu -> Configuration -> Language. 
  • UgCS for DJI mobile app is available only in English.
Do you provide UgCS training as well?
Are there any video tutorials on how to use UgCS?
Can I fly vertical scan missions with UgCS?
Can I fly a route created in UgCS in DJI Pilot?
What is the difference between UgCS PRO, UgCS EXPERT and UgCS ENTERPRISE licenses?
Does UgCS offer a solution to process acquired data?
The UgCS Mapper software gives you access to a powerful processing tool allowing to perform in-field offline stitching of maps and creation of complex elevation profiles. The processed data can be imported "back" into UgCS and used to plan next flights. 
UgCS Mapper also supports stitching of multispectral imagery and even live mapping from video using UgCS ENTERPRISE.
Currently, UgCS Mapper does not support stitching of vertical scan imagery or LiDAR data processing.
