Drones are the hot new toy of farmers, environmentalists, land managers, and the real estate crowd. With the FAA loosening the restrictions little by little these devices are finally being used for real work and will more so as the publics interest in all things drones continues to climb both for the kids not yet in college to the big kids with unlimited play accounts.
One way to make this drone imagery work for you is to layer with other vector information such as wetland data, farm and parcel boundaries, streets, and much more. Thus becoming a base layer for scouting and collecting data quickly and more efficiently. Another way is to zone the like pixels of the images to create regions of common information that can be surveyed to determine how they differ from adjacent and other areas with similar colors. Yet other ways is to extract the elevation of plants/trees/building/piles features to determine height, slope, volume, and elevation.
