An article in a recent issue of Construction News (14 August) caught my attention.
It is about the intriguing idea to use drones to map an aerial image or assist in 3D modelling.
The legal implications are worth considering, the article sets some of them out, not least the need to comply with Civil Aviation Authority guidance and regulations on using drones safely.
Other issues to consider aside from the infringement of other party’s rights that could arise, involve trespassing on or over property, and who owns the data obtained.
It is an interesting idea but needs careful thinking through before putting it into practice.
