In the context of digital governance, manmade activities will have the most impact on the environment. The concept of internet of things (IoT) is much more profound, supposedly having an impact on the way environmental sampling of data takes place. The cost benefits of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as alternate to satellite or high-altitude platform system (HAPS) is established as these are more flexible, mission specific, and versatile. UAV in sensor network context and communication relaying as well as data harvesting application is explored. Proposal to upgrade environmental laws and implementing network infrastructure security and cyber insurance for HetNets involving UAVs and environmental monitoring will be covered as well.
