Since the beta launch of OpenAerialMap we’ve been approached by satellite companies and drone operators looking to share images with resolutions ranging from 30 meters down to 3 cm. Some of the drone imagery we’ve seen is particularly impressive. The drone imagery below is of Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania and comes from the Tanzanian Commission of Science and Technology and the Tanzania Open Data Initiative collaborating with Drone Adventures exploring how to use drones in Tanzania. At the moment Ramani Huria community mapping projects are using the imagery and a Digital Surface Model to explore how communities in Dar es Salaam can become more resilient to periodic urban flooding.


If you are a drone pilot with imagery to share, open an issue on the OpenAerialMap Github page.
