To install WebODM you have two choices:
Take their words for it
– “OUTSTANDING!!!! Thank you very much, that worked perfect!!!”
– “I just purchased the standard installer and everything works well.”
– “I got this software installed and everything is up and running”
– “Thank-you, we now have it installed and working”
Support covers the installation of the WebODM Manager application, not WebODM itself. We have an awesome forum for WebODM questions.
Installers work on Windows 7 or higher and macOS El Capitan 10.11 or higher. Does not work on the new Apple Silicon computers. Check if your computer meets the minimum system requirements below before purchasing. An invoice will be remitted after purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer a free trial?
We currently do not offer free trials of the installers. WebODM is open source software. If you want to try it without making a purchase, an option is to install it manually.
Can WebODM process my dataset?
In general, if your images are JPEGs or TIFFs, come from a stock drone and your computer is powerful enough, yes. The ability of WebODM to process a dataset relies mostly on the availability of sufficient memory to complete the task. If you have a recommended amount of RAM (see the system requirements below) you should be able to easily process at least 100-300 images. Many factors currently influence the memory requirements and we’re working to get better benchmarks data available. If your computer is not very powerful, you can also process up to 5,000 images in the cloud. See the lightning page for more information.
What does installation support cover?
We will do everything we can to help you get WebODM up and running. If you encounter any issue while installing WebODM, we have you covered! However, questions about processing datasets, configuring WebODM, how to achieve XYZ, etc. are not part of our support offer. We have a very active community forum for those questions at https://community.opendronemap.org/c/webodm (and to which people from our support participate). By keeping such discussions open and public we can build a shared database of knowledge and allow users to help each other in the usage of the software.
Does the installer use docker?
The Windows installer is fully native and does not use docker.
The MacOS installer uses docker (but takes care of installing it / managing it for you).
Can I run WebODM on Linux?
Yes of course! Linux is actually our best supported platform. Simply follow the instructions provided on this page.
What's the difference between Standard and Business?
The only difference is speed of support (how fast we will reply in case you need assistance). There are no other differences, both include all features of the software without limitations.
Is the Mac M1 supported?
Mac computers with the new M1 (Apple Silicon) chip are not supported (we recently started a campaign to raise funds to add support for it, consider pledging some funds if you need M1 support).
