Drone Imagery Collection, Mapping, and Analysis
Small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS or drones) are now a common mapping and 3D modeling tool in many organizations. To fully-leverage this technology’s incredible capability to save money and time, operators need to have a fundamental understanding of how to collect quality images and process those images into usable information.
Learn proper camera settings and mission planning, participate in hands-on flight operations, and spend time working with leading structure from motion (SfM) software to process and analyze images collected from drones in this introductory course.
Join us prior to the All-Hands Meeting to learn about imagery collection, mapping, and analysis. Attendees will be able to:
- Understand imaging sensors, camera settings, the electromagnetic spectrum, and camera modifications
- Understand mission planning for precision mapping, vegetation analysis, and 3D modeling
- Understand implementing ground control points and other means of spatial control
- Process data related to precision mapping, vegetation analysis, and 3D modeling
- Recognize the advantages of Agisoft Metashape (Photoscan), Pix4DMapper, and ArcGIS
