Summary

In today's show, we discuss different strategies that skilled and experienced drone mappers can employ to make their business stand out from the competition.

Our caller, Glen, is a professional drone mapper with extensive experience and deep technical knowledge. Glen is livid that inexperienced drone pilots are taking on complex mapping jobs that they are not equipped to do. How can Glen advertise his skills and convince the client to hire him instead?

An effective way of addressing Glen's problem is through educating the client. Often clients are unaware of the complexities of drone mapping. You will learn how visual and verbal communication can help the client realize that creating accurate maps is not possible without survey-grade equipment and the right mapping workflow.

Paul reveals the various topics of discussion that will help showcase your mapping knowledge to your potential clients. Topics discussed include correctly setting GCP's, eliminating mean projection error, removing the ellipsoid error, operating mapping software, and much more. Thanks for the great question, Glen. Fly safe!
