2013 has been a very busy and exciting year for Flight Riot. I launched the site in April 2013 with the intent of sharing what I have learned about UAV mapping with others trying to do the same. I learn so much from others who post their work, it’s only right to do the same for you. One of the most exciting things that happened to me in 2013 is that I became one of 4 Directors at Conservation Drones. This would not have happened had I not decided to share my work with others.
Conservation Drones is a non-profit organization that seeks to share knowledge of building and using low-cost unmanned aerial vehicles for conservation-related applications with conservation workers and researchers worldwide, especially those in developing countries. These guys are top-notch in their fields and very dedicated to leveraging UAV technology in an intelligent, purpose driven way that ultimately best serves us all.
