Drones are booming.
Amazon wants to start using drones to deliver same-day packages. The United Nations is considering delivering medical supplies to countries in need and some are even hoping to help dog owners pick up after their dog’s number two. All of it with drones.
Some estimates have the drone market worth $127 billion by 2020. This includes everything from building and selling the drone itself to drone pilots offering services.
However, drones are not just used to conduct specific tasks. They are also used to gather information. For example, construction companies are using drones to survey their job sites.
The drones take video and pictures to show general contractors the state of a project or structure. These digital assets—the photographs and videos—save a lot of hours of work.
