On May 19 2020, Propeller, a global leader in 3D mapping and drone data 
analytics solutions, announced a Propeller Platform ( 
) add-on called Crew ( 
), a simple, data sharing tool that worksites use to relay interactive maps 
from desktops in office to mobile devices in the field.

The new add-on gives office teams the power to create and share interactive 
maps with professionals in the field using one-off links designed for mobile 
viewing. Each map has a unique URL that can be shared with anyone and any

This data sharing tool is designed to unify long-standing information silos 
with ongoing and open communication. Historically, worksites have manually 
prepared paper maps to keep site-based crews informed, but these maps quickly 
become outdated and require a specialist's knowledge to create. 

Working from outdated documents, foremen and surveyors on the ground are left 
to make critical decisions based on guesswork—a recipe for rework and utility 
strikes. Crew's up-to-date visuals, readily available for viewing on any mobile 
device, give on-site personnel the confidence they need to make decisions and 
the power to prevent costly mistakes. 

With the Crew add-on, users can: 
  -- Create, share, and view their latest aerial survey on any mobile device 
  -- Move and zoom in on specific areas of their site relative to their current
  -- Understand site setout relative to the final design 
  -- Turn design file layers on or off as required 
  -- Monitor cut and fill progress to design levels from anywhere on site 
  -- Identify subsurface utilities in the field to reduce strike rates 
  -- Draw on the map to communicate points of interest to other users in real
  -- View the elevation point for any location on site 

The best part of the new add-on is its simplicity: it distributes information 
without requiring users to download an app or remember sign-on credentials.  

Engaging with these maps also requires little or no technical knowledge. 
Office-based personnel just navigate to the site they'd like to share in the 
Propeller Platform, generate a unique URL, and send it to their in-field team 
using SMS, email, or any other communication tool they'd like. 

After opening the link, crew members can immediately explore a geographically 
accurate overview of where they're at to spot-check elevations, view volumes, 
stay safe, and stay informed. 

By marrying maps and mobile capabilities, the Crew ( 
) add-on makes collaboration an effortless part of your workflow— a single link 
that keeps everyone on your team connected.
