Manufacturers such as DJI implement a geofencing feature that establishes a virtual perimeter for a real-world geographic area. A geo-fence can be created in a radius around a point location, or a geo-fence can be a predefined set of boundaries, like school zones, power plants, airports and military installations. This can be enforced by the manufacturer to ensure the safety of the community.
AirMap provides drone manufacturers and drone software developers with airspace information about nearby airports and other sensitive locations, including real-time updates about temporary restrictions for large stadium gatherings, national security events, and wildfires. Some drones and drone software include geofencing capabilities to help drone pilots avoid flying over or near these areas. For more information about geofencing and unlocking for authorized access to restricted areas, please consult your drone manufacturer's flight manual and/or support portal.
