Drone or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) technology has dramatically transformed various industries. High-precision drone platforms and photogrammetry software are streamlining processes and improving efficiency. Drone data is an integral part of managing forestry and smart agriculture. Drone-based LiDAR is helping construction projects managers accurately complete a task. For surveying and mapping drones are enabling organizations to create highly-accurate maps and point clouds, discover costly on-site errors, and predict schedule delays, saving huge amount of money. The energy industry is leveraging drone data throughout its inspections and management. Drones are also rapidly becoming a standard tool for public safety and disaster management teams.

Like UAVs, Geospatial Information Systems (GIS), are indispensable tools for various industries. However, a GIS system is only as good as the data you feed it, and UAVs can quickly and inexpensively provide precise data. UAVs are becoming the favored solution for remote sensing as well. Drones have improved the geospatial data-collection process in almost every regard and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
