Why Use Humanitarian Drones?

Automated mapping drones (or UAV/UAS) provide accurate, up-to-date geographic data, on demand. Whatever your organisation’s specific field of activity—whether aid, development, SAR or disaster preparedness—humanitarian drones can play a valuable role, helping your staff to work more efficiently and take better, more informed decisions.

Applications

Thanks to their high-resolution, cost-effective insights, humanitarian drones are today being employed across a range of sectors, by organisations as diverse as The World Bank and Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining.

“The main orthophoto the drone data produced is already being used for roof print digitisation, and we’re planning to use the digital model for inundation mapping. I see drones as having great cross-sectoral potential.”
