Creating an Instant Inspection Order

Orders can only be created for sites that have been added to the Raptor Maps platform. If your site was created during your account onboarding, you can skip to step 2 and begin your order. You can view all the sites already onboarded by using the “Solar Sites” section of the app.

Creating an order for a different Inspection type? Click here for documentation.

Step 1: How to add a site

Gather the information required to create a new site. You will need the following information:

  • Site name: the name of the site as it will appear on the report

  • Site address: site address as it will appear on the report

  • Latitude/longitude: coordinates of the site location to at least 5 decimal places

  • Commissioning date: date the site was commissioned

  • Solar modules: solar module or modules in use at the site

  • Tracking / mounting technology: tracker or mount technology in use at the site

  • Module layout: number of modules per string

  • Inverters: inverter type in use at the site

Create a new site by clicking on “+ New” and following the instructions on screen.


Step 2: How to create an inspection order

An order needs to be created and submitted in the Raptor App before data can be uploaded for processing. Orders can be created ahead of time (recommended), or immediately prior to uploading data.

To get started, click on “+ New” in the left side menu, then click on Order

On the next screen, select "Aerial Inspection"

On the following screen, select the site you want to inspect, then click "Next"


Step 3: Submitting the order

On the Inspection Information page fill out the required information. Start by giving your inspection a name (e.g. March 2024). 

Note: the power inspected is auto-populated from site information, but can be changed if a partial site is inspected.

The site contact name you enter here will appear on the report. 

Toward the bottom of the screen you’ll see a dropdown menu for “Order Type”. Click this and select “Instant. Next, specify the drone you’ll be using for the inspection. The drones available to select are the only ones currently supported for Instant Inspections. You will not be able to perform an Instant Inspection with equipment not listed in this dropdown.

Once you’ve finished filling out the information on this page, verify the details you entered and click “Submit”.  

The following screen will display a confirmation message and a confirmation email will be sent to you. 

Now that your order has been submitted, it will appear within your “Orders" and is ready to receive inspection data.

How to find your new order

Navigate to the "Orders" tab in the left hand navigation menu and click on your order in the table.

Clicking your order will open the Order Status page. Notice the data upload link - this is where you will upload the data for this inspection.
