Are any councils or shires using a drone for any asset management activities?
If so, what would be the main activates it would be used for?

The City of Launceston is using Drone technology for condition assessments of drainage outfalls e.g. flood levee infrastructure, tidal flap inspections, monitoring of potential land slips along detention basins and earth levee infrastructure.
The drone is also used in survey for 3D modelling of buildings, 3D modelling for landfill sites to calculate volumes and also to identify areas of significant erosion. It's also handy to highlight and calculate areas of weed infestations and has proven to be a great tool by keeping the public up to speed with social media video clips of construction sites.
We have also recently used our drone to inspect one of our rivers, this was to check for bottle necks or potential blockages that may cause a damming effect upstream, as many of these locations would not allow us access by vehicle or on foot.
Hope this give you some insight to what we are using our Drone for and the benefits from utilising this technology.
