SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – 11/07/16 (PRESS RELEASE) – Last week Dutch startup Birds.ai announced that its app will be available on the DroneDeploy App Market, the first drone industry app store. The Birds.ai app identifies, measures, tracks, and reports the status of objects in aerial imagery taken by drones.
Because the Birds.ai app learns to track whatever the user directs it to, it can be used for a broad range of purposes and industries – from reporting the condition of wind turbines, to measuring plant growth.
CEO Camiel Verschoor said: “Launching our app in the DroneDeploy App Market will make our revolutionary object detection technology available to the worldwide community. This is a first great step in our efforts to distribute our services to everyone around the globe.”
DroneDeploy is the leading cloud-based drone software platform. Through the App Market, Birds.ai’s services will now be available to DroneDeploy’s 10,000+ users across 135 countries, online and on mobile devices. The Birds.ai app is $14 per map and customers can request unlimited image trials and one free map trial.
Daniel Rasmusson of DroneDeploy said: “The value of drone imagery is equal to the decisions it enables. Birds.ai is such a valuable lunch partner because they equip our users with the information needed to take action.”
Joining Birds.ai in the inaugural launch are over 10 apps from companies like Box, John Deere, and Verifly. The App Market was created to allow users to more seamlessly integrate drone data into their workflows, and will act as a one-stop-shop for all aspects of cloud-based drone data analysis.

Birds.ai is gaining momentum after successfully pitching its technology at the Commercial UAV Expo this week, and being selected to join the Holland Startup Pavilion at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. CTO Anouk Visser also recently was selected as a finalist at TedXAmsterdamWomen Startup Competition.
