In addition to eliminating the need and prohibitive cost of using manned aircraft to capture aerial imagery, drone use for photography and cinematography also allows for remarkably nimble flying giving access to areas that were not possible before. From hovering a few centimeters off the ground to over 100+ meters in the air with a single toggle, drones allow for photography of fantastic flexibility and scope while for the cinematographer, the ability to do long continuous shots, panning, and framing a chosen subject the entire time.

Incorporating technology into the buying and selling of homes and commercial property has become a standard operating procedure for savvy real estate agents. Drones are now the flagship of the ‘next-generation tools that make it easier to sell a home or building by showing off features previously inaccessible. Agents are increasingly engaging this technology including video, 3D imagery, and photography to provide a better overview Read More
Mining sites are not only expansive but are often hazardous, but also subject to substantial market pressures. As a result, the Australian mining industry is always looking for ways to be more efficient, cost-effective, and safe. Sphere’s extensive range of drones and complementary technology provides invaluable spatial data from above, and while traditional methods of data collection usually require long periods of time, UAVs can provide the same amount of information in hours.Read More
An agricultural drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle used to help optimize agriculture operations with drone technology, increase crop production, and monitor crop growth. Sensors and digital imaging capabilities can give farmers a richer picture of their fields with drone farming. Using an agriculture drone and gathering information from it may prove useful in improving crop yields and farm efficiencyRead More
In the oil and gas sector, commercial drone manufacturers are working in close conjunction with companies worldwide to make customized applications available for industrial use. This development will, in turn, allow for the creation of various types of data collection methods that can help obtain real-time insights into safety issues, weak areas of operation, potential leaks, and many other types of data.Read More
The future use of drones in healthcare also is very thought-provoking. How can the industry best use this technology to improve safety and care delivery? Well for starters, drones already have been trialed to deliver food aid and medical supplies to areas hit by disaster, such as Haiti, by a startup called Matternet. The rapid delivery of vaccines, medications, and supplies right to the source could quash outbreaks of life-threatening communicable diseases. Communication equipment, mobile technology, and portable shelter comprise the vast list of what could be delivered in a rapid fashion to areas where critical infrastructure damage would prevent ground or typical air transport.Read More
Mapping & Surveying
Now, UAVs are the most powerful tool for safely capturing accurate aerial data quickly. Importantly, they can also create aerial maps and 360-degree virtual tours in real-time, even before they’ve landed. Sphere’s extensive collection of drones delivers greater detail, and higher map resolution and has the capacity to measure vital areas in centimeters, as opposed to meters. Taking advantage of our drones and mapping technology, you can also create collaborative maps and 3D models.
Search & Rescue
For those industries that serve our communities, public safety is paramount. However, search and rescue operations, firefighting, and disaster response efforts always have the potential to be hazardous, costly, and time-consuming. In the past, these operations have been hindered by treacherous conditions and a lack of access, as well as the need to deploy large, scattered teams. Fortunately, new drone technology has ensured that life-saving activities can now be completed with improved speed, precision, and accuracy.
