Mike Winn, co-founder and CEO of DroneDeploy, recently announced their users had achieved a new industry milestone: 3,000,000 drone mapped acres across 120 countries.
Drones combined with software platforms for collecting and analyzing drone data have become powerful tools for industry. Unfortunately, not everyone has been exposed to the value drones unlock across industries, such as within agriculture, construction, mining, inspection, real estate, research and more. And this is why achieving 3,000,000 drone mapped acres is important. It signals to those that have been observing from the sidelines that:
- Businesses are seeing increasing value in drones across all industries
- Drones are not a United States trend, but a global phenomenon
- Drone adoption is accelerating, even in the absence of clear regulation
