Importance of drone technology to GIS

With the ability to autonomously collect a range of data, businesses of all types are racing to take advantage of drones.  A GIS system is only as good as the data you feed it, and UAVs can quickly and inexpensively feed them a stunning array of data. But, utilizing UAVs for data collection is no small task.

Like GIS systems, drones--or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS)--are flexible tools able to satisfy a wide range of professional needs. The advent of light-weight, high-performance drones has disrupted many industries in the past decade, a trend that won’t slow down anytime soon. With the ability to autonomously collect a range of data, businesses of all types are racing to take advantage of drones. In fact, the FAA estimates that by 2022 there will be nearly half a million registered commercial-use drones in the United States (Source: FAA 2018 - 2038 Aerospace Forecast.)
