Many people currently see drones being used in TV and film production, news bulletins and even music videos. This is only one type of application, with other industries such as farming, construction, mining, sports training to name a few.
Construction sites are utilizing them to present their work from a different perspective to prospective clients, as well as generating 3D maps. Drones are also able to generate maps from a series of photos that can then be run through software that will allow the user to measure distances or volumes without having to physically be on site.
