How to create a new Mines & Aggregates Project

1. Login to Delair.ai

Once you have accepted the invitation to create your user account, you can login by navigating to delair.ai


Press Login at the top of the screen, and then log into your account on the next page.

Once logged in, the next step is to create your first project/location


2. Create a New Project

What do I need to create a new project? 

For Agriculture & Forestry projects please refer to the corresponding article.
Project creation requires manager and user level permissions for the desired account.
If the aerial images are not in your possession and you wish to create a new project you would need:

1. Vector file (.KML, .geojson, .topojson, .json, .zip shapefile) of the Project Site/Location boundary
a. The boundary of the Vector file will determine the clipping of the final data products.
b. For more info see: How to create a KML using Google Earth PRO
2. Coordinate Reference System for the Project (EPSG/ESRI/UTM)
This will be used to define the projection of your deliverables after the processing of the images has been completed.


Create a project with aerial images

Click on    in the top left side of the home screen.

Note: A project is created one time, and not for every survey/flight

Once the New upload screen opens, drag and drop your aerial images (JPEG, TIFF format) or you can click on browse files to locate the images on your computer.


1- Type the Project Name

2-  Select your site if it is listed in the dropdown menu (If the site is an existing location on the legacy Cloud.delair.ai this selection will link the project, being created, to the existing site one) If the project does not exist keep this field blank.

3- Flight Date - delair.ai will automatically read the exif data, geo-locate the files and date (You may change it if needed)

4- Flight Name - is an optional field and can be used to identify the survey by something other than the flight date, such as a particular area of interest (stockpile area, west pit, etc.)

5- Coordinate Reference System (CRS), will be detected by the geographic location of the images and will automatically propose what CRS can be used for the project. If the CRS needs to be changed, click Edit > Look for the CRS and select your regional CRS. For your vertical CRS select EGM96 if you cannot find your country's vertical CRS in the list. Once the CRS is located, press Select, and then press OK.


Create a Project with a vector file (without aerial images in possession)

Click on  in the top left side of the home screen

Note: A project is created one time, and not for every survey/flight

Once the vector file selected and loaded, the Project Options window will appear.


Fill in the project name.

Note: Select your site if it is listed in the dropdown menu (If the site is an existing location on the legacy Cloud.delair.ai this selection will link the project, being created, to the existing site on Cloud.delair.ai) If the project does not exist keep this field blank and a twin project will be created on cloud.delair.ai.


Latitude and Longitude are used to display the pictogram over the site when it is created, this can be extracted from Google Earth or Maps, by dropping a pin on the KML of the site and copying the latitude and longitude in decimals and degrees format only.


Coordinate Reference System

If your company is linked to cloud.delair.ai, the Coordinate Reference System (CRS) cannot be changed after the project is created, so it is very important to be sure it is correct before proceeding.

If the Coordinate Reference System (CRS) need to be modified, click Edit > Look for the CRS and select your regional CRS. If you cannot find your country's vertical CRS in the list select EGM96. Once the CRS is located, press Select, and then press OK.

If you are unable to find the desired CRS listed, please reach out to support@delair.ai for potential integration.


Press “create” then “Finish”. Your project will appear after few seconds on the map and will be listed in the projects list.
