Drones use by Public Safety Agencies has been growing explosively.
There is a general rule of thumb when buying drones: the more features it has, the more expensive it is to buy. You might say that this is true with most gadgets. Getting a long range drone means that you have fewer chances of losing the signal when you are flying it, and as a result, you have more control over what the drone can do. This is especially true when it comes to photography and videography. Long range drones offer you more dynamism in this aspect. They also come with a couple of wonderful advantages which include:
- They can fly further from your controller and give you a wider field of view.
- They can get higher to give you those perfect aerial shots.
We are a highly visual species. There is no denying that fact. All you would have to do is take a look at any social media platform, and you will see a myriad of selfies to confirm it. Indeed, smartphone photography has come a long way. In that time, it has taken on a whole new dimension as smartphone manufacturers try their best to keep up with the demands of a selfie-crazed world. While front-facing cameras have higher-resolutions than most professional cameras and selfie-sticks can help you capture wider angles, today, if you have the money and are so inclined, you can take your very own professional self-portrait using your phone. However, selfie sticks don’t always allow you to get as wide an angle as most people would like. That is why selfie drones are the new craze. Read More

Drones have become a major part of our lives in many aspects; this includes photography, videography, but most importantly field mapping using drone surveying. Drones have the ability to map an area or object, no matter the size, in a matter of minutes whereas it takes humans hours, days, or weeks. Plus, drones have become so widely used that even the simple hobby models can achieve UAV survey grade mapping accuracy in a 3D model or a photogrammetric map. Read More

Photogrammetry is a process involving the generation of precise measurements from photographs and is typically used an application for line plotting on topography maps. In recent times, however, photogrammetry has evolved into a multipurpose technique that has been readily integrated into an array of modern applications. Photogrammetry incorporates remote sensing and accelerated photography to create precision measurements that are capable of processing two-dimensional photographs into three-dimensional models. This unique ability of photogrammetry has produced an intense level of interest from a large collection of businesses, programs, and individuals. Read More
