For example, a drone inspection of a refinery storage tank can provide data to API Tank inspectors, paint & coating, firefighting, and air quality specialists. The key to making this possible is to get the inspection data labeled properly and into a system that provides consistency, enforces the client’s data standards, is secure, and is easy to use. Furthermore, once your inspection data is stored in a consistent format, the power of analytics can be unleashed on the data set.
