Drone Helps Verify Earthwork at Hospital Construction Site
According to a report from Goldman Sachs released earlier this year, construction will be the biggest commercial sector for drone use in the near future. We saw a similar trend when we examined DroneDeploy user data in our Commercial Drone Industry Trends report  — construction was the fastest-growing industry for drone use. For many, this trend isn’t a surprise. Current commercial and prosumer drones can easily fly the area of a typical construction site and provide timely and high-resolution maps and 3D models of site progress  offering significant efficiency gains compared to traditional methods.
