Mapping the Drone Industry

For our analysis of all 333 exemptions issued in 2014-2015, click here.

In July, we released a database of every company and individual currently operating drones commercially in the U.S. The dataset, which will be updated regularly as the FAA continues to grant exemptions, contains a wealth information about the scope and shape of the country’s budding drone industry. We turned this data into a series of maps in order to get a better sense of the geographic spread of the industry. We will update these maps regularly.

    Great and very valuable work.
    Please keep it up; you are supplying a very valuable service that will contribute to help the remotely piloted aircraft systems community to identify itself.
