Video: Crisis Mapping Nepal with UAVs


I had the honor of spearheading this disaster recovery UAV mission in Nepal a few weeks ago as part of Kathmandu Flying Labs. This Flying Lab is the first of several local UAV innovation labs that I am setting up with friends and colleagues in disaster-prone countries around the world. The short film documentary above was launched just minutes ago at the 2015 Web Summit and describes how we teamed up with local partners in Kathmandu to make use of aerial robotics (UAVs) to map Nepal’s recovery efforts. 

Please help us share this story of drones for good widely. Thank you!

  • Well done Patrick.

    I saw videos on this come up on my feed from both DJI and Pix4D. Almost didn't recognise you with that baseball cap on ;)
