Commercial drone utilization interactive map

As I previously reported in my blog, new FAA regulations require operators of drones greater than 0.55 pounds (@ 2.5kg) to register their drones with the FAA. As a result, we can now witness new utilization of drones via online FAA filing database. This provides not only a great insight into ways the companies are utilizing drone technology, but also areas (in the US), where drones are most used for commercial operations.
