The Future of Geographic Information Systems

If you are in the GIS profession you will either be using data from a UAV or you will be flying one to collect your own data within the next 3 years. The capabilities of these machines allow for easy, accurate and comprehensive data collection. The example we have included on this page returned a GSD of .1cm. We flew the mission in 4 minutes and had the data to analyze by the time we landed the aircraft.
