Sometimes, disaster is inevitable. In weather emergencies, loss of data and vital information can threaten the life and long-term viability of your company. It is important that your business gets back to normal as quickly as possible, and what greatly aids in that goal is having a disaster recovery plan. Implementing a plan isn’t always easy. There are a lot of moving parts, and key members of your recovery team need to be up-to-date on the most relevant information. To that end GIS, like those produced by ROK Tech can offer a huge advantage.

Find out three new ways drone technology is currently inspiring the GIS world.
