{pre-registration and additional fee required - $50 professional; $0 student}

Organizer:  Justyna Jeziorska,  Center for Geospatial Analytics, North Carolina State University

Overview: Did you know that you can use the pictures taken by the drone’s camera and process them to get high-resolution spatial data? Now you can learn how to do that! This workshop will focus on the hands-on guidance in Unmanned Aerial Systems imagery processing using Agisoft Photoscan. It will include everything from the data collection (sample UAS data will be provided) to generating results – DSM, orthophoto, point cloud and 3D model of the earth’s surface. Additionally, the participants will be instructed what to do to operate a drone and collect data legally in the U.S.  With the increasing demand for the high spatial and temporal resolution data, drones are a cheap alternative for data collection. The knowledge how to process the RGB imagery to produce reliable and accurate models becomes an invaluable skill for anyone who works with spatial data.

Intended Audience: students and professionals, or just a drone enthusiast!
