Brendan Schulman, DJI’s Vice President of Policy & Legal Affairs, had announced during the launch of Aeroscope last year, that the company was working on a more precise and more 3D-like geofencing solution to fence off areas around airports, specifically taking into account the runways. Today, in an official announcement from the world’s largest drone maker, DJI explains that this new Geospatial Environment Online (GEO) Version 2.0 will be rolled out starting next month, first in the US.
