Esri introduces Drone2Map to process aerial images
Drone2Map incorporates Pix4Dís powerful image-processing engine to analyze images taken from drones and convert them into a variety of 2-D and 3-D maps.
The final products delivered by Drone2Map include digital surface models, 3-D point clouds and meshes as well as orthomosaics, which are stitched images that have been geolocated and corrected for distortions that result from varying camera locations.

TravelByDrone ... lets people from around the globe pin their own drone videos to a massive world map.
Welcome to travelbydrone.com! We want to give you the chance to discover the world from the perspective of drones. The video footage of the area you are most interested in is as accessible as never before.
On this site, everyone can share YouTube videos and add the corresponding location. It will appear on the map with a pin where the video footage has been recorded. After submitting a request to share a video, a dedicated team will review the material before validating the request. As soon as the request has been validated, the shared video will be visible on the map.
For a share request to be validated, the video needs to be taken by a drone (not of a drone), be of good quality and clearly show the area in which the drone flies. A video will not be accepted if it is taken indoors, is from a military drone or is of promotional nature (promoting a product or has a political, religious or other personal message).

Facebook Looks to Drones for More Internet Access
Facebook hopes to send about 11,000 of the company's drone models into the air to then beam down Internet access to the world's approximately five billion unconnected people.
Titan Aerospace produces unmanned high-flying drones that function much like orbital satellites, but at a fraction of the price.

The Simplest Drone Of All Time?

The Simplest Drone Of All Time?
Following 100 years of flight, drones are making us question everything we know about aircraft. Sure, most military drones still resemble pretty typical planes, but we're also seeing all sorts of alternative approaches to flying, like tiny quadcopters that can perform remarkable acrobatics no stunt pilot could dream of.
Without human payloads on the line, relatively low-cost drones are spearheading a mass wave of experimentation in flight.

Maryland High School Offers Drones 101
In the classroom are two teachers, 12 students and four flying robots.
At South River High School, located in the Annapolis, Md., suburb of Edgewater, a group of upperclassmen is learning how to make and fly quadcopters.
The course, "Introduction to Unmanned Aerial Systems," is supported financially and materially by Annapolis-based communications and engineering company ARINC. Consider it a shop class for the future.
The students aren't just learning how to pilot the drones. When one team wanted to add a camera to their Flame Wheel, they used a 3-D printer to make taller landing gear that could hold the camera.

What are Drones
http://dronewars.net/aboutdrone/
What are Drones?
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS), also known as drones, are aircraft either controlled by Ďpilotsí from the ground or increasingly, autonomously following a pre-programmed mission.
While there are dozens of different types of drones, they basically fall into two categories: those that are used for reconnaissance and surveillance purposes and those that are armed with missiles and bombs.
The use of drones has grown quickly in recent years because unlike manned aircraft they can stay aloft for many hours (Zephyr a British drone under development has just broken the world record by flying for over 82 hours nonstop); they are much cheaper than military aircraft and they are flown remotely so there is no danger to the flight crew.
