Uses of Drones in GIS

Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) are an indispensable tool for many modern industries with drones (unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) which are flexible tools able to satisfy a wide range of professional needs.

With applications in construction, real estate, agriculture, city planning, public health and safety, and more, the diverse capabilities of GIS systems enable them to meet a wide range of business needs.

Geospatial technology is what gives UAS the ability to be autonomous. Drones are one of the newest and most innovative tools to be considered for commercial use. The survey data in less time, using fewer natural resources than manned aircraft.

In the past decade, UAVs have moved from the hobbyist’s garage into professional industries in a major way. It makes sense, given that drones provide some big advantages over traditional aerial vehicles. 

Drones can be deployed quickly, and commonly flown routes can be automated, minimizing human involvement (and human error). They’re also environmentally friendly and greatly reduce the risk of damage to persons or property.

With such new and uniquely augmentative capabilities, it was inevitable that GIS and drone technology would collide.

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. 

In precision agriculture, Drones give farmers the convenience of being able to inspect crops from new perspectives and with frequency never before possible.

 With the drone, data collected by UAVs can be reviewed easily,  play mainly a surveillance role in the law enforcement sector. They are the eyes for monitoring infrastructure.

Geospatial technology is what gives UAS the ability to be autonomous. Without the capability of following a GPS-guided flight plan, a drone is just a glorified radio-controlled aircraft.
