    We (Hivemapper) are getting ready to release 750,000 miles of overhead power line data throughout the US. The initial release will have location of the lines and then a follow-on release will add the heights for the towers and lines. We are looking for folks with an Android device to help us beta test. Beta testing should only take a few minutes of your time.

    If you are interested drop me a note at ariel@hivemapper.com

    I just visited your site and love the idea of 3D mapping via drone videos. My question is, where are you obtaining the height information for power lines and towers? USGS Topographical maps? I would totally use your map for pre-flight planning purposes but would like to know where you are obtaining this information?
