PLEASE... PLAN BEFORE YOU FLY
UAVS ARE ON THE RISE
UAVs have become invaluable to projects of all scopes and sizes since they can efficiently capture high-resolution data and even collect several different data modalities at the same time. They are relatively economical to deploy and store, which means they can be flown for repeated coverage and to understand change over time.
GETTING THE RIGHT INFORMATION IS A PROBLEM
After organizations collect UAV data, they often realize it cannot be used for its intended purpose. This can be due to the type of sensor used, type of data collected, the way the data was collected, or the lack of technology necessary to extract information from the data.
