Anyone get a drone cam for xmas?

SIG: Landscape

I am sure that more than a few RPS members will have received a drone camera (or is it a camera drone?) for xmas but I very much doubt than any will have the amazing power of the WorldView3 satellite cam.

In this interesting article, Robinson Meyer discovers the technology involved in taking high-resolution landscape images from cameras orbiting the earth at 17,000 mph.

Perhaps the new Landscape special interest group, which launches on January 5th, will be setting up a satellite imagery sub-group?
