John Clyatt – Drones in Surveying and Mapping

Logo 600 x 600Welcome back, Drone Law Nation! Today our guest is John Clyatt, President of Pickett & Associates. Pickett is a privately owned surveying and mapping firm celebrating over 50 years of success. Centrally located in the Florida peninsula, Pickett’s primary service area covers the Southeastern U.S. and the Caribbean Islands. Pickett offers turnkey surveying and mapping services on land, sea, and water.

Pickett is on the “bleeding edge” of new technology in the surveying and mapping world. That tech-forward focus has led John to bring his company into the world of drones and other autonomous vehicles to aid in the surveying and mapping process. Our talk focuses on how drones can impact the surveying and mapping industry, the “data collection” value proposition of drone technology, and the frustrating state of FAA drone regulations for companies trying to “do it right.” We also touch on state drone regulation and how “technology neutral” laws are critical for allowing the drone industry to flourish.
