ABSTRACT: Over the past several years, the functionality of drone technology has rapidly improved. Applications fit into many industries and the GIS world is no different. High resolution, georeferenced orthomosaics easily insert into GIS and drone data can be processed to provide planimetric and topographic data that is both accurate and current. This data can be quickly captured and produced. While the general outputs are often known, sometimes real world, practical applications are not as easy to pinpoint. This presentation explores how the use of drones can enhance actual GIS projects through several case studies. Asset management and inventory projects are made easier by high-resolution imagery that clearly displays surface features. Gone are the days of waiting for another manned aircraft flyover to update base mapping after new developments or capital projects are complete. Drone technology is another tool in the tool belt for GIS professionals to accurately manage and present information about in-the-moment conditions.
