How French firefighters used drones to tackle the Notre Dame blaze
"Firefighters used two commercial models made by the Chinese manufacturer DJI—the Mavic Pro and Matrice M210—both of which feature thermal cameras. These were used to track how the fire was spreading and trace where the flames may have originated. In turn, as the French newspaper Libération reports, the images were used to work out the most effective way to position fire hoses. The aerial vantage points guided the strategy for tackling the blaze. By contrast, according to the report, a helicopter would have been less flexible and more expensive."

"The AGP team captured the whole cathedral in detail with particular attention to its damaged parts. The information will be processed in a 3D documentation software where a point cloud can be manipulated and modified as well as compared to another data set. The benefit of such software is that it collects the scans to produce a highly detailed point cloud which can be coloured and modified according to the user’s needs."
