Drones not only allow versatility in mapping terrain, they also allow us to get highly detailed renders of the environment that we can’t get from satellites. This year, the people at the UAV team SenseFly and the aerial photography company Pix4D launched three drones to navigate and scan the Matterhorn, one of the tallest peaks in the Swiss Alps.

But I think you’re going to see Jerry Brown less interested in the optics of running the state. And really, he’s going to be more interested in old fashioned politicking political wrangling, dialog, arm twisting up. It’ll be interesting to see if he can do it.BLOCK: OK, John, thanks so much.BLOCK: That’s John Myers, Sacramento bureau chief from member station KQED, talking about today’s inaugural of Jerry Brown as governor of California.NPR transcripts are created on a rush deadline by Verb8tm, Inc., an NPR contractor, and produced using a proprietary transcription process developed with NPR.
