Geospatial Drone Zone

The arrival of drones equipped with cameras, GNSS, LiDAR, multi spectral and other sensors brings with it a whole host of opportunities for the geospatial industry.  

Geomatics and geospatial professionals who are working in architecture, construction, utilities and engineering, as well as agriculture, energy and emergency response are already actively utilising drone technology and seeing the benefits of being able to inspect key infrastructure sites, or map complex environments with exceptional speed, accuracy and cost efficiency.

This is an active fast moving market for the drone industry that is changing at a rapid pace. Many of the large geospatial companies are now manufacturing drones, cameras and sensors for application in this industry.
