The world is clamoring for data that only a drone can deliver. Not toy drones for hobbyists. Not military drones. Powerful data-capturing drones that are transforming the way companies operate - offering unparalleled insight from 400 feet.

According to the 2017 Drone Industry Trends Report by DroneDeploy, drones’ mapping capabilities are completely redefining old and creating new industries.

Key report insights:

The ease with which drones collect data, combined with integrations that make that data easily shareable, is increasing company efficiency. 60% of DroneDeploy users create new maps every single week - signaling that entire industries are becoming reliant on the data drones provide.

- Drones are creating tens of thousand of jobs

The rising popularity of drones is generating significant value for enterprises and entrepreneurs alike - from the creation of 29,000 new jobs for drone pilots to lucrative company decisions facilitated by data.
