Gokarneshwor Municipality is setting new tech trends in the country as it become the first municipality in the country to use drone for surveys and urban planning.
Drones capture high quality aerial images that can be used for survey, infrastructure development and urban planning. The project is being performed in partnership with Structure Design and Services, Dronepal, and Naxa.
It is also supported by the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and Angelswing, a smart drone startup.
Gokarneshwor Municipality has set an example which other municipalities can learn from. This technology will revolutionize traditional survey techniques which take a long time and are not as qualitative. Also urban planning with the Satellite images does not lead to quality image. Drones can provide clear, high quality, highly detailed images quickly and inexpensively. Dronenepal, one of the company involved in the project, is the first Nepali drone service company which has been providing drone services since 2016.
