Very minor site news post, nothing major, mainly for my own benefit.

New sign up last night from Argentina.

I need to add an option to the sign up page that lets a new user choose their country from a dropdown list. Primarily, I need this for reporting so that I can get an understanding of where new users are coming from, but secondarily, I should be able to use this data to provide a localised service where the demand exists.

We now have operators in Portugal, France, Spain, Poland, Romania, Latvia, South Korea, Jamaica, Canada and the United States.

Pix4D - Drone Mapping Software

We often get asked about our workflow here, and, due to the nature of the industry, we also tend to field quite a few questions from new operators who are getting into the business. Nine times out of ten we're asked about processing software and what we'd recommend. For people who are getting into drone operations I'm most likely to recommend Pix4D. Agisoft's Photoscan is another great product, but the learning curve is steeper and (to me) it's not as intuitive.
