“The people I rely on the most in my career are those I've personally met and spent quality time with at URISA conferences.

  The Future of Smart City Planning: Employing HD Aerial Imagery - August 13, 2020 at 2pm EST

What are you using to plan for the smart cities of the future? Having access to real location intelligence helps you identify areas for development, pinpoint potential problem situations, and track property assets over time and remotely. Aerial data helps better inform and guide decisions to eliminate project workflow inefficiencies, tighten project timelines, and can help save lives . In Government, the collaboration between aerial imagery and GIS data is critical—it vastly improves the quality of life for all individuals occupying a given geography.
