This post is the latest in the Drones and Small Unmanned Aerial Systems Special Series, which profiles interesting information, thoughts and research into using drones, UAVs or remotely piloted vehicles for journalism and photography, that Kike learns about during his travels.
Using aerial footage taken by Kishor Rana with a drone that was not intended for mapping, Matthew Schroyer of the Professional Society of Drone Journalists extracted image stills to create this 3D model of the earthquake damage in Kathmandu’s Durbar Square.
