Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Aerial Imaging Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

The report forecasts the global aerial imaging market to grow at a CAGR of 13.28% during the period 2016-2020.

Aerial photography is extensively used in areas like oil and gas, construction, and agriculture. Big data cloud services provide reliable and actionable data for automatic processing and analysis of raw aerial images. Big data cloud technologies convert aerial imagery into precision 3D photogrammetry. These services enhance user productivity by incorporating sophisticated quantitative and qualitative pattern analysis in a comprehensive data collection process. Advanced data processing technologies provide the flexibility to detect subtle structural and environmental changes comparing previous survey details.

According to the report, innovations in drone technology have facilitated the transition from high-cost fixed wing aircraft to cheaper and more efficient UAV LiDAR models. Low-cost UAV LiDAR systems find applications commercial, government, and environment and conservation sectors.

Further, the report states that drones have problems associated with safety, third-party liability, privacy, and homeland security. The processing of data, including images, sound, and geolocation, carried out by the onboard drone equipment entails many privacy risks.
