Hi Fred,

Thanks for your email. I think deploying drones will be a great idea for
mapping those places for better hydrological modeling. I believe the marked
areas are mostly rural in nature, and I don't expect tall buildings there.
However, we sure can check that accurately. I also believe that the
permission from the flight regulation authority is possible. I know couple
of people, who can help us on that regard. Previously, we have seen drones
being deployed in different agricultural projects in rural Bangladesh, and
I dont think it will be difficult for us to get the permission.

I am copying this email with couple of my friends, who can give you more
information. Please let us know if you have any other question. Also,
please feel free to keep me in the loop.
