Vertical Images: From Film Making to Inspection, and Why the Future of Drones Doesn’t Lie in Flying

Successful drone entrepreneur Petr Lněnička went from award-winning filmmaker to drone inspection leader in his native Czech Republic. Here he lays out 3 pieces of advice and explains why for him, the transition seemed logical, and why he believes the future of drone mapping services will place less and less emphasis on drones and more and more...

FAA’s Part 107 Rules Ease Some of the Challenges Faced by Commercial UAS Operators

Users of UAS aerial images must be open to the idea that legitimate UAS operators interested in complying with the law might not be able to fly the mission as planned due to operational restrictions imposed by the FAA.

Industry Insights: Enabling Cloud-Based Augmented Reality Networks

The concept of cloud-based augmented reality (AR) is on the precipice of fundamentally changing organizational decision making for all types of industries. However, with any new technological frontier, there are many innovative startups vying to take the lead in the practical, commercial application of AR. And this is exactly what’s happening today, with the geospatial sector being on the forefront of this technology frontier.

NGA Director Cardillo Declares GEOINT on the Rise

The agency I’m privileged to lead celebrates a major anniversary this fall. It’s been a remarkable 20 years—from NIMA stand-up to NGA transition to the GEOINT Revolution. And I can proudly—and confidently—say that GEOINT is on the rise, more relevant than ever to our customers today and poised for a tomorrow that’s filled with possibility.

Are UASs More Like PCs or Macs?

Because I’m a land surveyor by background, I keep thinking it’s the UAS that’s important; the manufacturer matters, in the same way the choice of total station or laser scanner often comes down to a preference for Leica or Trimble. But Airware (and other firms) argue that UASs are more like a commodity, and that the real value of UASs for businesses lies in the systems installed on the vehicle.

NGA Continues Work to Remove Friction

Even before the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) renaming transformed the agency from the more-static-sounding National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), the organization was hard at work to speed and ease the workflow of turning raw images into insight. The organization has been at the technological forefront of exploiting imagery and continues to provide valuable information in a timely manner that impacts missions and lives.

Turning UAS Enthusiasm into Entrepreneurial Innovation

Steve Huntley is something of a character in Paonia, Colo., my hometown. Lately, his UAS videos of local scenes and events have been making a splash. His recording of the controlled demolition of the Oxbow Mining Silo was a big, if controversial, hit—the silo’s local landmark status and association with the coal industry made its destruction a flashpoint for the region’s progressives and conservatives.

Remote-Sensing Renaissance Leads the GEOINT Revolution

There’s something incredibly powerful going on right now, something the USGIF refers to as the Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) Revolution. It represents the synergy of remarkable advances happening simultaneously across multiple technology areas. When combined, this cooperative interaction fundamentally changes our individual and collective ability to deal with our construct of spatial thinking and awareness, altering our ability to apply space over time to a range of tasks, missions and disciplines in a way we hadn’t imagined.

Coastal Monitoring Provides an Opportunity for Oil and Gas Projects

Deepwater Horizon—the memories are fading, but the negative effects still are being felt six years later and will be for a while to come. Much has been said about the impacts on the wildlife, coastal ecosystems, fisheries, tourism and other parts of the local environment and economy.
