Drone Imagery Collection, Mapping, and Analysis Training

Drone Imagery Collection, Mapping and Analysis Training

Small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS or drones) are 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. During this three-day introductory course, attendees will 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.

3 days in person
Practice data sets included
Hands-on software practice


What to Expect

Specific use-cases explored in this course are precision mapping, vegetation analysis, and 3D modeling. Standard visual, multispectral, and thermal cameras will be used throughout this course to give the student a well-rounded understanding of the capabilities of passive sensors equipped on a sUAS. View the Drone Imagery Collection, Mapping, and Analysis Training course schedule (pdf) for full details.


Experience Matters

"The best part of this course was the diversity of imagery we collected and methods. Being able to network with the instructors and pick their brain was so helpful."
