I'm a mapper in the Philippines. I am representing Geoladies PH, we advocate in community diversity and affirmative spaces for women and under-represented communities in OpenStreetMap and in geospatial science. I use drones for mapping disaster response, environmental monitoring in local communities. I'm an awesome map-maker but a poor map-navigator.
Drone technology is an evolving industry used in multi-disciplinary fields ranging from agriculture, marine conservation to real estate and films. There’s so much potential and possibilities on what drones could help people making work faster and more efficient. In mapping, aerial imagery uploaded to Open Aerial Map can be used as basemap for OSM editing. Example cases are in Batad Rice Terraces, UNESCO Heritage site for mapping tangible changes in the community over time and create a tourism map and other small urban communities in the Philippines, aerial imagery was used for mapathons and community mapping done in OSM.
