Collecting Your Own Aerial Data

An exciting possibility: increasingly affordable hardware and sophisticated software should make it available for anyone to collect high-resolution georegistered aerial imagery.  Beyond just viewing the result, with the use of photogrammetry and ground control points, the imagery could provide a base for collecting all the 2D and 3D features that are the last-mile problem in modeling and visualizing the whole world.
