Winding down the year is a good time to reflect on the changes, applications, and direction of the small Unmanned Aerial Systems in the mapping industry. This has been another year of rapid and dramatic changes in the drone world. Waivers and authorizations are still big topics. Drone for delivery is creeping into the picture […]

It’s about the data
Working in the UAV world isn’t always about the drone. In fact, the drone is only one piece of a single stage of an accurate high resolution mapping workflow. This blog will outline various stages of the GEO Jobe UAV process. It will then highlight one example of the final stages by focusing on extracting […]
Making the point with UAV
A question came up recently in a conversation about the different products and stages of processing and presenting data captured by UAVs. I’ll use a recent construction monitoring project to demonstrate some nice examples of the various stages of the photogrammetric processing workflow. This will also show and describe some of the products and deliverables […]
A Check List For Flying UAV
There are certain things you can count on with almost any Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) job. Something will go wrong is one of those. It is almost as if the adage “One is none, two is one”, was made for UAV jobs. One of the pillars of Project Management is to identify and mitigate risk. […]
What is a Micro GIS?
The question really isn’t “What is a Micro GIS?” It’s a small scale GIS implementation. The question is “Why Micro GIS and why now?” To start a GIS, entities need a place to start. For most GIS implementations, a georeferenced basemap is the first step. The best basemap is one that enables other layers that […]
In this, the 20th year of GEO Jobe GIS Consulting, it’s a good time to look ahead.
