NexTech: Using UAVs for Flood Analysis

Flooding season is quickly approaching, and with it comes unsafe environments that are potentially dangerous for humans to enter. That’s where drones come in.

With the ability to be quickly deployed and access hard-to-reach or potentially dangerous areas, drones are a great tool for responding to emergency or time-sensitive situations; providing valuable information to help inform decisions after an event and to help prioritize resources and effort responses.
