City Planners Turning To Aerial Technology

18 April 2017
The Wall Street Journal reports that officials in major cities have begun using aerial techniques such as digital aerial photography, UAVs, and laser imaging to craft urban planning solutions. These new aerial technologies provide a higher level of detail than satellite imaging and are useful in addressing issues ranging from drainage to installing new renewable energy sources to fighting fires. In some cities, aerial technology is being used to combat crime; in others, it helps determine if abandoned buildings need to be razed. (Image Credit: Alexander Glinz via Wikimedia Commons)
