Happy to join this community and get my feet wet & hands dirty. My background is in IT & insurance, and I started building drones long before they were a thing. Did my first FPV aerial imagery around 2009, did a little 3D mapping around that time, and have been blown away with all of the new technology available today.
I’m working on a project to use drones for insurance underwriting purposes. Ideally, my claims adjusters and underwriters would be able to visit a location, set some way points, and have that data sent back to my AWS database & machine learning models. I’m mostly interested in roof condition which can be done with basic 2D images, but eventually I would like to use some 3D modeling for roof complexity and also to calculate tree height/distance in relation to the house.
I have run some large forums, and been a member on many others. I was hoping one (or several) of you senior members could point me in the right direction so I can hit the ground running. Maybe there’s a project in the works, something similar that could be helpful, or any information I should be aware of based on my project objectives.
Any and all information is greatly appreciated, and in return, I plan to become a regular contributor to this open source project.
Thank you & have a great day,
