… Two events, from different parts of the world, on the same day and subject: geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS) and the use of “layering” to map, analyze and design.
… Today is 4-H National Youth Science Day, and 4-H Maps & Apps will be introduced to millions of American youth to exhibit and examine the power of geospatial technologies. “We created this year’s experiment to inspire young people to be critical thinkers by embracing a technology that can help change and shape communities in innovative ways.”
… Also today, senseFly, the Swiss start-up recently acquired by French wireless devices provider Parrot (also famed for providing the AR.Drone quadcopter), announced that they will begin providing swarm technology for mapping. The new swarm capability has been incorporated into senseFly’s ground control software and includes in-flight collision avoidance and shared waypoints.
Spectacular video showing how mapping the Paris Air Show is done using two ebee drones and senseFly’s new swarm technology.
