Usage of small dimensions RPAS ( drones ) has a real and practical benefit on forest, environment and agriculture management. Drones can obtain Digital Surface Models and pseudo-NDVI orthomosaics that can be manipulated by Geographic Information Systems (hereinafter GIS) allowing professional and rigorous studies along with technically supported decisions.
We provide here an example of woody crop inventory done with our drones and GIS…Continue
The Flying Robot international Film Festival, an open competitive film festival focused on drone-based cinema, is seeking short film submissions (<5 minutes). Of particular interest to the DIY Drones community, we're looking for more entries in the Student Film, I Made That and Drones for Good categories.
Student Film - If you're a student and have a drone related…Continue
