The appraisal industry can benefit greatly from using a drone in practice. Whether it is a roof inspection, fly-over of a creek or a 360 degree panoramic view of the surrounding properties, a drone is an additional tool an appraiser can use. Satellite images can only be zoomed to a certain level before they begin to blur and distort. A drone can capture images up to 400 feet high. The current 4K cameras can take multiple images that can be processed into 2-dimensional orthomosaic maps or even 3-dimensional models. Properties can be accurately evaluated in different stages of construction. Topography can be almost precisely calculated and various aspects of land can be identified. The use of drones is such a new technology that uses are still being discovered.
Drone Education Services is dedicated to providing the highest level of education on the benefits of the use of drones. Whether, they are used in the water, land, air or space, drones are offering abilities that were until recently unobtainable. Opening Minds to Drone Technology. Lamar H.
