Vast areas can now be covered in a short space of time and new data can be made available, both of which is more vital than ever now that raw materials are in short supply and high demand.
Open-cast mining and oil production are both benefiting from the use of UAVs
As new mining sites become harder and harder to find, due to both their scarcity … Read the rest
