While multi-rotor drones have flexibility and can work in tight spaces, they may not have the enough range and cannot carry enough weight for large projects. Fixed-wing drones can often provide the solution needed for a large surveying or surface geology study. Welcome to an interview with Lyndon Nance, who discusses his experiences with large mapping projects in which he uses fixed-wing drones.

Small drones, both fixed wing and multirotor, are tools well suited to capturing the imagery required for aerial mapping. The requirements for getting started in this business are less than one might think, but there's a significant difference between an attractive looking map and an accurate product. Welcome to an interview with Jeff Campbell, managing partner of Vertical Aspect, the managing partner of Vertical Aspect, a small company specializing in consulting, training and sales of products associated with UAV (drone) mapping.
