The usage of Small unmanned aerial vehicles, better known as Drones, have rapidly become mainstream technology in hobbyist and professional circles, from the Youtube vlogger to the real estate speculator due to increased access, affordability, and wider public understanding. This tool presents an opportunity for designers and everyday citizens to better understand their physical environment and develop more informed design solutions. However, the landscape architecture field has yet to widely utilize the full range of data drones are able to capture; furthermore, embedding that information within the design process. The embedded usage of Drone technology in the Design process plays an important role in an integrated practice and is an essential tool for the landscape architecture discipline now and into the future.
