Welcome to the Raptor Maps knowledge hub. You'll find guides and documentation to help you start working with Raptor Maps as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started

Types of Inspections and Uses

When arranging a solar site inspection with Raptor Maps, you’ll select one of three inspection types:

  • The Raptor Overview inspection is ideal for rapid drone flights and insight into string-level outages. It identifies anomalies at the module level.

  • Use the Raptor Standard inspection for annual preventative maintenance. In addition to string-level outages, it identifies anomalous diodes, cells, and hot spots.

  • The Raptor Comprehensive inspection meets IEC TS 62446-3 thermography standards. It identifies additional anomalies based on differences in temperature as well as includes all of the information provided by a Raptor Standard inspection.

Once your inspection report is available, you’ll access the results of your solar site inspection through the Raptor Maps application.
