Virtual Surveyor includes the Export Image tool that allows you to deliver your drone data analysis as a georeferenced image or export clipped image. Save the contents of a boundary as a GeoTIFF or a JPEG2000 file.

The Export Image tool is available in the EXPORT tab.

Quick guide

  1. Draw a boundary around the export area.
  2. Enable/disable project items to get the expected view in the viewport.
  3. Select the boundary.
  4. Go to the EXPORT tab.
  5. Set the image format in the box.
  6. Click on Export Image.
  7. Specify a filename and a disk location and then click Save.


  • Export your analysis result as an image to use it in a CAD or GIS software.  

  • You can also use the Export Image feature to clip a specific area within a very large orthophoto. Use that when you want to easily share only that specific area with another user. You can also use the clipped image to create a new Virtual Surveyor project that will run faster. 

Tips & tricks

  • You can combine the image export with an elevation terrain export of the same area to generate a 3D textured dataset. 
  • Virtual Surveyor GeoTIFF can be easily open by GIS sofware.  If you plan to use the image in a CAD software, prefer Jpeg2000 setting.
