We’ve talked a lot about the potential drones have when it comes to changing the way specific construction companies and surveyors can approach a given task, and the commercial ramifications of the technology are incredibly exciting. However, drones are set to enable changes at an even more fundamental level, and AirMap is one of the companies dedicated to ensuring this happens in a safe manner across the world.
Articles talking about why a given year is the “year of the drone” go all the way back to 2010, although they certainly didn’t start that year. Similar declarations have been made more recently about 2015 and 2016, and the claims in those years were specifically related to the commercial applications of UAV technology. The hype associated with commercial drone technology has been nothing if not bombastic, and these headlines helped fuel such enthusiasm.
When it comes to commercial UAV adoption, more and more people have begun to talk about the data as opposed to the drone, which underscores the importance of the data being gathered, regardless of how it’s captured. It’s a concept Airbus Aerial has literally taken to new heights, since they’re focused on integrating data via platforms that vary from satellites to drones and adapting it to help solve industry-specific problems. This approach allows the Aerial to provide customized data solutions.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
