Drones vs. Satellites

Did you know that drones are able to gather data faster and for less money than satellites? When it comes to wildlife, agriculture, aerial photography, disaster relief, to name a few, drones are significantly cheaper, and offer higher-resolution media.

Agricultural researchers are experimenting with the use of drones to monitor the growth of crops. The use of aerial video in the energy sector, especially oil and gas, is another key application. Compared with satellite imagery, drone mapping can produce data faster, at a higher resolution and a far cheaper price.
