How Long Does Map Processing Take?

Turnaround times for map processing can vary depending on the size of the site and number of photos that have been submitted. In general, however processing times are as follows:

# of photos Turnaround times in hours (estimated)
Less than 300 photos 1 to 3 hours
400 photos up to 4 hours
500 photos up to 5 hours
600 photos up to 6 hours
700 photos up to 8 hours
800 to 1500 photos up to 24 hours
Over 1500 photos up to 48 hours

If the number of images you upload is smaller or larger, the amount of time to process may decrease or increase accordingly. Processing times are not linear, so a 2000 photo dataset may take 10x longer to process than a 200 photo dataset, but a 4000 photo dataset may take 30x longer to process instead of 20x.

You'll receive an email notification once your dataset has been processed and uploaded to your Skycatch account with links to your map in your viewer and downloadable files in If you have uploaded a photoset and it is taking much longer than the above given times to process, please email us at with the name of the site and date of your upload.
