AirMap for iOS Lets Drone Pilots Avoid Incidents

FOR MOST PEOPLE, the basics of where, when, and how you can fly a drone are fairly straightforward. First you have to register it . Flying drones near airports, at night, over crowds, above 400 feet, and while drunk are all serious no-nos. But those are only some of the rules, and they’re guidelines for just-for-fun drone pilots. For commercial operators—including professional videographers and building inspectors—there’s a different set of […]

$40,000 prize for algorithm to do change detection on aerial imagery

This is a really important problem to solve; hope someone does! From Popular Mechanics : An engineering firm wants to make sense of the abundance of aerial photos we now shoot from planes, satellites, and drones. Draper , out of Massachusetts, has put a $40,000 bounty on an algorithm that can accurately sort and sequence images taken from miles in the sky, with implications, perhaps, to track wildlife, observe erosion, […]
