Hello All!

We're already at the end of the third month of 2021! We have released a new eBook "Drones in public safety: the bigger picture", had water-themed use cases about mapping islands in the middle of the Atlantic, surveying mangroves along the Tanzanian coast, and we explored how to better manage golf courses.

Got any questions for us, or want to feature in your own use case? Hit reply to get back to us. 

Happy reading!
