Balloon mapping is a fun, non-threatening way to collect data and introduce aerial surveillance to small groups. UAVs are starting to take off as a more controlled way to collect imagery, but the word 'drone' doesn't quite have the same effect as 'balloon'! Verdict? I had a really fun day with a great group of people. I had to miss the follow up happy hour, but I'll definitely be back to visit another time. Thanks Philly ~ You have a great group of people up there and I'd love to host you in Baltimore some time!
