Imagery can serve as an important starting point in delineating land claims. There are multiple options for obtaining imagery, including existing free imagery (typically from governments), purchase of commercial imagery from satellite providers, aerial collection by aircraft, and use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones). As part of Cadasta's overall technology strategy, I've been looking into what is available and most appropriate for our partners depending on their specific needs. I'm excited to be attending the launch today of the New America Foundation's drone primer with the support of the Omidyar Network.
