Bog hopping by Drone

Unmanned aerial vehicles are being flown over peatland sites in the Yorkshire Dales to collect data and  create a detailed picture of the extent and severity of peatland degradation.

This sounds like a cost-effective way to generate detailed mapping of large areas and avoid the high cost of aerial photography from a light aircraft.

See the article in The Northern Echo for more information.
