App for drone mapped river & creek runs
I'm looking for feedback and ideas on a potential new venture for our company. The plan is to develop an app as a platform to provide low altitude aerial "tour" or "scouting" videos/maps of river and creek runs filmed by our drones.
This could include features like pointing out different Rapids and known hazards in the video, as well as show the current flows and the flow when filmed.
I think this could be great for planning trips or deciding whether to run a certain section as it's the one thing missing from websites like American Whitewater.
There are a lot of variables, such as: What flows to film certain runs, obviously you would still need to scout harder runs for hazards but this would give you the basic idea of the runs difficulty, main features, and overall fun factor. Which runs are popular enough to film. As well as potential cost structure i.e: pay per map, freemium model, subscription.
If this is something you could potentially find value in using, please let us know what you would like to see in the app and on the flights as well as any thoughts you might have, thanks!
