Hi there. We're experimenting with drones and AGOL for a variety of applications, but something we've been trying to figure out is to collect a point from our drones location directly into AGOL. At the moment, the only way we can see to do this is bring the drone down, collect imagery, find the georeference, and then add lat long into AGOL. As you can imagine in a search and rescue situation this is a little clunky, but not unfeasible. 

If we could find our subject, hover near the subject, and collect a point directly into an AGOL map that can then be seen by first responders instantly this could decrease rescue times and man power by a great amount.
