Construction Progress imagery has been a standard product of aerial and technical imagers for decades. The proliferation of affordable (and very talented) digital cameras, drones1, and sophisticated software capable of producing everything from time lapse video to 3D models have expanded the practice of photographic documentation-but not without considerable liabilities. A true drone operates autonomously; more common consumer and “prosumer” units are correctly referred to as an sUAS (small Unmanned Aircraft System). ↩
What does an aerial photography flight involve? Professional aerial photography is quite a technical affair involving knowledge of not only flying an aircraft, but competencies in color science, physical and geometric optics, meteorology, the Global Positioning System (GPS), the National Airspace System (NAS), and even solar astronomy.
