Until recently, going to google maps, to get a birds eye view of a location was the default option for many Permaculture Practitioners and Consultants, but the main limitation was it could not be relied upon to provide 100% up to date imagery.
And then came the boom of personal drones.
Using a drone is a great way to do mapping on a property, either contour mapping or for a water analysis map.
It is also a valuable tool to get a perspective on the diversity that you don’t get while surveying from a ground level and is far more complete in detail than going to satellite imagery.
Rob demonstrates, briefly, how he is getting the most from his new drone.
