EARN REWARDS FOR CAPTURING EARTH IMAGERY WITH YOUR DRONE IN hexagonal ZONES CALLED SPEXIGONS.
THE IMAGERY YOU COLLECT WILL ENABLE BETTER DECISION MAKING BY ORGANIzATIONS EvERYWHERE.
Using the app, you’ll be able to see a map of your area & open zones you can fly to earn rewards. These zones are shaped like hexagons and contain everything your drones needs to fly and image them. We call them Spexigons.
Spexigon enables anyone with a compatible drone to contribute by producing high-resolution Earth imagery that organizations can use to manage assets like buildings, public works, natural resources, & infrastructure.
To start, pilots will earn points for capturing imagery using the Spexigon app. In time, points will be capable of being used on the platform for a variety of purposes.
Spexigon is currently considering adopting a rewards based model where pilots might earn tokens that would be redeemable or used as consideration for goods and services offered on the Spexigon platform in the future.

fly your drone, capture imagery, and earn rewards
When our app testnet launches in Q1 of 2024, pilots will be able to earn Cash & Reputation Points for missions they fly. Pilots will be rewarded after Spexigon missions have been flown and imagery has been collected, uploaded, and verified for quality / authenticity.
Once the platform moves to mainnet, it is intended that users will continue to earn Reputation Points in addition to also earning SPEXI tokens.It is our intent to distribute SPEXI tokens at some point in the future, pending regulatory approval or clarity. We hope to reward network contributors in general proportion to their impact and contribution. Reputation Points are intended to play a role in this.
In Q3 of 2023 pilots will be able to begin flying in some parts of Canada. We'll be working to open up additional areas as soon as we can from there. See our documentation for more details on our current launch plan.
All pilots are responsible for ensuring they follow their local rules and regulations regarding drone pilot certificates, insurance, etc. Many jurisdictions around the world do not require drone pilot certificates/licenses for drones which weigh under 250g, however some do.
Other more localized rules and by laws exist that pilots should familiarize themselves with before commencing flights in their regions.All pilots who choose to fly will have the opportunity to undertake free training online which highlights best practices for safe flight, efficient data collection, and platform functionality.
Spexigon will initially be standardizing on the sub-250g class of drone, specifically the DJI Mini 2, Mini 3, and Mini 3 PRO to start. In time, additional drone models will be approved to work on the platform.
When the testnet launches, pilots will be able to earn Reputation Points and Cash for collecting & uploading imagery to the platform. In time, points will be capable of being used on the platform for a variety of purposes.
Once the platform moves to mainnet, it is intended that users will continue to earn Reputation Points in addition to also earning SPEXI tokens.

Your reward earning potential will depend on the time you have to fly Spexigons, the number of open Spexigons in your area, and how often the platform needs those Spexigons to be flown.
Spexigons are hexagonal zones that overlay a map of the earth inside the Spexigon app in order to show where imagery needs to be collected.
Each Spexigon contains flight plan information that the drones use (combined with the Spexigon mobile app) to ensure they are flying at the correct height, speed, and location to capture the best imagery possible.
The Spexigon system serves as a method of standardization. The most challenging aspect of working with high-resolution drone imagery is the capture process. By standardizing this process, ensuring it is the same everywhere on Earth, and potentially combining it with a crypto-economic incentive model, Spexigon will capture imagery in a similar fashion to how satellites capture imagery from space.
