Surveyors already have access to ground-based, manned flight, and satellite data, so will they embrace this new technology in earnest?
MELVILLE, N.Y., July 25, 2016 — BZ Media LLC announced today the fourth in a series of critical examinations of the hype and reality behind certain vertical commercial drone markets, “The Truth About Drones in Mapping and Surveying.” The free report was commissioned by BZ Media and written and produced by Skylogic Research.

“Today, the exact same data collected traditionally by ground-based survey tools can now be gathered faster and more cost effectively by drones,” said Colin Snow, CEO and Founder of Skylogic Research, LLC. “That data can be used in a wide variety of surveying and mapping applications and in this paper we review those applications, discuss the opportunities and challenges posed by the technology itself, outline the lessons learned, and predict what’s next for drones in this industry.”
“We are presenting a number of class sessions and panels on mapping and surveying at InterDrone,” said Conference Chairman Ted Bahr, “and there will even be a pre-conference half-day workshop on the Pix4D Mapping tool the day before InterDrone. Last year the mapping and surveying sessions were packed, one of them with more than 275 mapping professionals.”
InterDrone is the world’s largest event dedicated to commercial drones and expects to host more than 4,000 commercial drone buyers and flyers who will learn at more than 120 sessions. More than 135 exhibitors will be showing the latest drones and related technology in the expo hall.
