Empowering communities to safeguard history for future generations
Empower Local Communities
Identifying locally-led efforts in response to pressing community challenges is vital to developing a the sustainable system where Skydio products can have significant long-term positive impact in a community. Locally-led groups deeply understand the barriers for change and needs of their community.
Whether through human or natural disasters, historically significant structures are at an increased risk of disappearing at a moment’s notice. Through Skydio Autonomy and 3D Scan, communities create digital twins enabling digital preservation and structural integrity comparison over time.
Digital preservation offers increased accessibility for educational means as online sharing enables students globally to interact with the 3D models and visit these significant sites virtually.
Getting started with the latest drone technology can be a daunting task. We aim to provide access to our technology more readily for historical preservation nonprofits who have a clear problem our technology can solve.
