Dronestagr.am: Let’s Build a World Map from Drone Images

Here's the pitch from Dronestragr.am:

Share your best aerial pictures and let's build a world map of our Earth with a bird's eye view. All DJI Phantom, AR.Drone owners an others welcome and sign up to upload your first picture!

For now the site is more likely Flickr (others say instagram, but I am not familiar with that site) for drone imagery and someday video. Images are categorized by who took them (amateur, pro), or what they show (ceremony, cityscape, countryscape, sports ). Each image can have likes and comments and important for the mapping idea, each has metadata including street location as well as the drone and sensor.

The company is based in Lyon, France. Other stats:

  • three employees
  • no capital
  • limited content
