Did you know? Every dollar goes directly to fund the development of OpenDroneMap. Look at all the new features and bug fixes we have completed (also here and here) with help from people like you.

Support covers the installation of the WebODM Manager application, not WebODM itself. We have an awesome forum for WebODM questions.
Installers work on Windows 8 or higher and macOS 10.15 or higher. Check if your computer meets the minimum system requirements below before purchasing. An invoice will be remitted after purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a free trial?

We currently do not offer free trials of the installers, but we have a 30 days money-back guarantee!

Also, 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 3,000 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 (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.

Can I run WebODM on Apple M1/M2/M3 (Apple Silicon)?

Yes! And it’s pretty fast too!

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.

Are there educational discounts?

Volume discounts are available. Reach out to the team at [email protected] to discuss.

Are there volume discounts?

Yes! If you need more than 10 copies of the installers get in touch with Team OpenDroneMap.

How does WebODM compare to proprietary software?

Comparable or better in terms of quality. Take a look.

We realize many people might be skeptical about open source software and our affordable pricing; this is why we also offer comparable prices.
