Flight Riot strives to create a community that advocates the use of drones in conjunction with geospatial technology for remote sensing and mapping applications. We place an emphasis on open source technologies with a ‘do it yourself’ spirit. We encourage exploration and discussion of technology, drone platforms, mapping cameras, and specific remote sensing applications such as vegetation management, agricultural and land analysis, as well as terrain mapping and surveying.
If you are interested in drone mapping then we invite you to sign up, publish, and share your projects and ideas with us.
