Great news for those looking to develop drone related business.  DroneDeploy, a startup that has developed cloud-based software for commercial drone applications, was just awarded $9 million in funding, proving there’s a lot of interest in this market. In fact, this $9 million is on top of the $2 million in seed funding they’d raised in 2014.

The edge offered by their solution is ease-of-use with mobile devices, allowing UAVs in motion to send data to users’ tablets and smartphones instantly. They’re hoping their software will be put to use for:

  • Aerial data mining for construction projects with applications for tracking project progress, measuring distances and volumes, and working with CAD and other design software.
  • Agriculture data mining allowing farmers to get early warnings of pests, weeds and disease, as well as information for studying crop health and growth.
  • And more.

DroneDeploy claims to be the first push-button solution for the commercial drone industry.
