How We Use The Drones To Capture The Inaccessible Areas

When it comes to the drones photography, it’s a rising concept, which is getting admired in all aspects of life. Some drones are quite affordable and expert photographers are using them to capture breathtaking aerial images with this state-of-the-art drone technology.

Here, in this article, I’m going to enlist some exciting uses of drone imagery that anyone of you can get caught up in, together with some remarkable applications across the world.

Aerial Mapping

The first and the foremost benefit of using drones is for aerial mapping. Nowadays, it’s become quite easy to capture the image of the terrain around you. With the help drones, you can get the full access to reach dynamic terrain and the difficult areas such as coastal areas and mountain ranges. Don’t forget to read drone user guides. Afterwards, these images and video footages can be used to construct charts of areas; you would like to discover.

House Selling

Another significant use of the drones is that; the real estate professionals are using drone photos and videos to sell out their properties. They create HD video footage of every house angle and present it to their clients. Drones are also helpful for the home owners wanting to make some renovations. You just have to flutter the drone above your house to find out different problematic areas so that you can improve them accordingly.

Delivery

Another advancement in the world of drones is that; Amazon recently announced a program, in which they’ll use drones to distribute products. Even though, they can’t become successful but, no doubt, delivery services using drone will help the retail industry shortly. The disaster management association is already using drones to drop medical supplies. On the controversial side, some people are claiming that the drones are being used for delivering drugs and narcotics into the prisons, too.

Impossible Experiments

It’s not something that we will recommend you to do with your newfangled drone, but some explorers such as Cossman used a drone to roam over an unreachable volcano (which is lethal to human life). In this experiment, drone captured footage that enabled researchers to mock-up volcano caverns more thoroughly than previously did. Though, the drone used, destroyed completely – thanks to the unstable air and extreme heat.

News Reporting

A lot of journalists are nowadays using drones to record video recording from the war zones and the disaster areas as it helps them to prevent in putting a human life at risk. After a controversial issue being highlighted, Paparazzi was prohibited from flying drones across the commercial properties as it’s against the will of the celebrities.

First Person Aerial Photography

You can have the benefit of the first person view with the drone if you want. You just need to purchase a drone and a unique pair of glasses that connects with the drone and there you go! Now you’ll feel like you’re a part of the drone flight itself.

Search & Rescue

No doubt, drones have already helped all over the world in search and rescue missions; it’s either seeking out missing persons or carrying out a disaster zone searching. Virginia police struggled hard for about three days to locate missing persons, but all went in vain and an amateur photographer found them in only twenty minutes with the help of a drone.

Surveillance

When it comes to the surveillance, the entire industry is harvesting significant benefits from the drone technology for several reasons. As a matter of fact, drones are small in size, easy to deploy, difficult to spot, easily hideable and affordable as well. Airware – a San Franciso-based company, deployed a drone way back in 2013 to monitor rhino poachers.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
