Uploading images from your computer

Upload thermal and visible spectrum images into the Raptor App

Once you’ve flown a site and collected images, you’ll need to upload the images to the Raptor Map App.

If you have access to the Raptor Maps app, log in and select Upload Images.

If you don’t have a Raptor Maps account, send an email to [email protected] to request a link. Provide the name of the site associated with the images.

Limit each upload session to a maximum of 1000 images.

Note: Please access the app using the Chrome browser.

Using a link or by selecting Upload images from the left toolbar, access the Upload Images page:

Review the upload name. If you need to change it, click on the pencil icon to do so.

Use the following convention to name the upload:


If you are uploading data to enable create of an orthomosiac, use ORTHO as the file type.

Note. We need the full site name to match upload sessions with the associated report; do not abbreviate.

Next, select all the files in the associated folder and drag them into the camera icon box, or click on the camera icon to select a folder.

The images are NOT uploaded yet. At this point, the image metadata is extracted and all photos with GPS positioning are accepted. The number of images accepted and rejected is displayed on the left side. You will see the locations of the images on the map.

This is your opportunity to check and make sure the flight didn't miss any rows.

Click on Upload photos to start the upload process.

Use this page to monitor the progress of your upload session.

The upload session transfers images and backend server processing then files them for use by the Raptor Maps platform. Files are Ready once they have been transferred and processed.

You may see the message Our servers appear to be experiencing high traffic. This message appears after your data has been transferred to us, but the server processing is not yet complete.

If you need to transfer more data, click Upload More to return to the upload page. You can start a new upload session while this session continues to process in the background.

Click Continue to go to the Create Image Sets from Map page. if you do not click either button, the "Background Server Processing" progress bar will continue to increase until completion.

Or you can wait until the background server processing is complete.

Once all files have been transferred and processed, the final Upload Progress page displays.

Check to confirm that the session successfully uploaded all images.

To start a new upload session, click on Upload More Data. Otherwise, click on Done.
