Live DVD/USB ISO with ODM, node-ODM and WebODM pre-installed. No installation required, just plug and play. Works on most 64bit computers.



LiveODM is great for:

  • Setting up a dedicated machine for ODM
  • Classroom use and training sessions
  • Offline use


  • 64bit computer
  • 4GB USB Drive or an empty DVD. A 2.0 or 3.0 USB and a is highly recommended. More space is recommended when using persistent mode.

Getting Started

To build the ISO you will need an Ubuntu machine (16.04 or higher).

  1. Clone this repository
  2. Run ./

If you just want to use the stock LiveODM ISO without making changes, simply flash opendronemap.iso with your favorite program (see Flashing the ISO), plug the USB onto your computer, reboot and you're done! If you want to customize the ISO, instead follow these additional steps:

  1. Run ./

You are in the chroot environment now. Make your modifications (add programs, update ODM software, change settings, etc.). When you are done:

  1. Type exit. This will leave the chroot environment.
  2. ./

Then wait. When it's done, the opendronemap.iso file will be ready to be flashed.

Flashing the ISO

You can use one of many programs to flash the ISO onto a USB drive.

Program Description
Etcher Easy to use, no persistence options
Unetbootin Persistence up to 4GB on FAT32 file systems

Default Credentials
