What Can Drones Do?

If you read our last post, you probably have gotten the idea that drones can be used in a variety of applications. From military and law enforcement to capturing real estate and live events, drones can be extremely useful when you simply want a different perspective or if sending a person to view something could place them in harm's way.

Hollywood has been using drones in movies for years now, but it's only recently that consumer-grade drones have been equipped with cameras and gear capable of offering high-quality imaging worthy of sharing. With the advancement of technology, high definition cameras that once weighed as much as your average second grader can now fit in the palm of your hand and are able to be mounted on a variety of drones.

One great use of drones is to capture real estate images or video. This allows potential buyers to see not only the interior of the home, as they were once limited to. Now lookers can see a more accurate depiction of how a property lies, or how property boundaries line up with adjoining properties. It also allows lookers to see what the immediate surrounding area looks like without having to use an internet mapping service to get an idea. A recent study by one aerial imaging group found that 83% of all those home sellers surveyed stated that, if given the choice, they would choose to work with a real estate agent who does use aerial imagery instead of one that does not. 83%! If you're a real estate agent, you know how hard you work for your customers. That's just one of the many reasons we're proud to offer real estate videography and photography, no matter how big or small the home or property.

Another great application when it comes to property is that of commercial construction. Whether you're a developer or a contractor, a planner or an architect, tracking construction projects by drone imaging can reduce wasted time and effort in a big way. Imagine being able to view the status of your projects without having to step foot outside your office door. Going on vacation or to a conference but want to receive accurate updates on where crews stand in the build process? Remnant Co. offers a variety of services when it comes to construction projects, including routine updates on a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or other frequency as needed.

Other great applications for drones include tracking installations of artwork or signage. One local Northwest Arkansas business, Best Sign Group, utilized Remnant Co.'s services to share a sign install at a local apartment community:

In recent flooding in the midwest and plains areas, news and weather crews utilized drones to capture footage of damage and to locate individuals and families stranded by quickly-rising waters. Insurance companies also used aerial images to expedite their claims process and get much-needed funding to their policy holders.

These are just a few examples of how drones can be used in commercial work. The possibilities are endless!
