Benefits Of Drones

Aerial Photo Tornado Damage

Many people may be surprised at some of the ways drones are being used to provide benefits. We thought we would provide a short summary of just a few ways they are making a positive difference.

1. Farmers – aerial photography and videography created using drones can help farmers improve output, conserve resources, and avoid excess.

2. Infrastructure – thanks to drones buildings, roofs,  and bridges can be safely inspected for a fraction of the cost or danger that used to come with using humans to climb dangerous scaffolding or ladders to do the same thing.

3. Natural Disasters – in the event of a natural disaster drones and aerial video can be used to survey the damage and search for missing people. They can also be used to identify areas that need the most attention without endangering emergency personnel.

Drones Help Farmers

Drones have many uses in the aerial photography field and one of them is to assist farmers in finding new ways to increase crop output while reducing crop damage.

Historically if a farmer wanted to survey vast farmlands from the air, the only way to do so was to hire an expensive fixed wing or helicopter pilot to record aerial video or take aerial pictures.

Thanks to drones this cost can be greatly reduced by using a drone to do the heavy lifting.  As drone and camera technology improves the aerial imaging capabilities of drones will be used in even more and innovative ways to help farmers maximize their crop production.

At DroneVU Studios we can picture a setup where a drone could fly at a preset interval to specific way points and provide farmers with valuable insight into everything from fungal problems to soil discrepancies, to watering irregularities.

Although DroneVU Studios does not specialize in aerial photography or aerial videos for farmers, we could develop a custom solution upon request that would assist local Tampa farmers in keeping a close aerial eye on their crops.
