People in Ecuador continue to try and piece their lives back together after a massive deadly earthquake.

People there are getting some help from a local company.

Crews are still in search and rescue mode, scouring the rubble for survivors.

Aeryon Labs is helping the country by providing technology, like drones and mapping systems.

Richard Cunha with Aeryon Labs, went to the country himself.

“I was actually down there with a local partner of ours who have partnered with the municipality of Quito, which is the capital of Ecuador. Quito is actually currently using our systems to map their urban areas for urban planning.”

They’re creating maps that are accurate within a few centimetre’s for city planning.

Now, they’re using that same technology, to help find people.
