News – West Wilson Utility District Turns to GEO Jobe for UAV Data Capture & Orthophoto Updates

Local governments, utilities, and facility managers have a new resource at their disposal to help keep their GIS land base current and up to date while also saving money. Our latest news release shares details of a UAV orthophoto update project for West Wilson Utilities District, Wilson County. The project has resulted in significant cost savings for the district and now the region is the envy of surrounding agencies, being in the fortunate situation where instead of the Orthophotos being the most out of date GIS layer (as is very common), their Orthos are leading the change detection and data capture processes.
