Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS, also known as “drones”) are an innovative technology currently being introduced in a wide variety of industries. UAS platforms offer several key advantages over “manned” aircraft, allowing users to collect high-resolution aerial imagery or videos in a safe and timely fashion in situations that are considered too “dull, dirty, or dangerous” for piloted aircraft. Applications of UAS technology are far-reaching in federal, state, and local government, and are currently being used to provide critical intelligence for decision-making in many areas, ranging from agricultural monitoring to emergency management. UAS mapping technology can also be used to supplement and improve upon other data sources for many applications, including community planning and tax assessment.
