"Drones are an emerging technology with the potential to revolutionize how we work across many industries," said Esri president Jack Dangermond, who announced the beta release of Drone2Map for ArcGIS at the Esri Federal GIS Conference today in Washington, DC. "We built Drone2Map for ArcGIS to give people the ability to process, use, and share imagery—all within ArcGIS."
