Drones. You might think of them only used for military purposes or hobbyists capturing aerial videos over their favorite campsites, but drones have been revolutionizing a variety of industries with their numerous commercial applications.
Botlink provides an end-to-end drone software system designed to help people use drones, especially in construction and agriculture. This allows users to automate flights from takeoff to landing, capture sensor data from a bird’s eye view, plan missions with the touch of a finger, and processes actionable data for smarter business decisions.
During flight, drones capture anywhere from hundreds to thousands of aerial images that need to be stored securely and shared quickly with colleagues to be put to good use. In the business world, time spent manually downloading and sharing drone results is time and money wasted.
This is where the Egnyte + Botlink integration comes into play.
Egnyte and Botlink partnered to help users quickly and safely share data with colleagues. Drone data, such as processed aerial maps, are automatically synced by Egnyte, keeping the data safe while allowing file sharing in one easy-to-access location. There are many benefits of the integration:
● Sync data automatically into the Egnyte platform
● All files can be accessed anywhere, on any device
● Organize files using the familiar and intuitive Egnyte user interface
● Users are able to safely share files with colleagues to improve collaboration
● Saves time and increases productivity
How Egnyte + Botlink improves your business workflow:
Construction project managers use Botlink to capture aerial imagery and process maps of worksites. Drones make regular flights to monitor progress from initial survey to project closeout. It’s important that managers have the ability to share their drone data with project estimators to give accurate bids, provide crew members with more purposeful planning and safety meetings, and inform investors of progress updates, and other stakeholders.
The Botlink + Egnyte integration makes it easy to share captured drone data with others. Users can make annotations, share comments, and mark up maps.
Egnyte provides Botlink users a central location to securely store their drone imagery, easily organize it by date and location, and quickly share it with collaborators to make more informed and unified decisions. Egnyte + Botlink helps professionals and industries streamline their workflows and improve bottom lines with more actionable drone data.

What’s the difference between a Drone, UAV, and UAS?
Everyone has heard the term “drone.” It’s becoming an increasingly popular way to refer to the small (usually) helicopter-like devices that are being flown by millions of people around the globe. However, there’s a host of other terms used to describe them, which can make things a bit confusing. It does seem a bit strange to have the word “drone” used to not only cover a $30 hobby aircraft that a child can fly, but to also describe a high-tech $10 million weapon used on a battlefield. Those devices don't exactly serve the same purpose. So why don't they have different names? Okay, so for starters, basically every UAV is a drone...but not every drone is a UAV. Still confused? Completely understandable! Before we dig in further, it’s worth noting that with drones becoming increasingly popular, it’s likely some of these definitions will change in the future when the FAA eventually settles on more specific terms. This isn't a bad thing, as drone is so all-encompassing at the moment that it's hard for people in various industries to agree on anything. But for now, here’s a brief explanation of the different phrases you’ve likely heard to help you understand what each one means and what the difference (if any) there is between them:
