    This unique and comprehensive, instructor-led training course is taught by experts in the fields of Aviation and GIS. Participants will learn how to effectively and legally deploy drones and process imagery data for real-world applications. Participants will leave the course with a clear understanding of the Drone-to-GIS workflow, including planning and completing missions, processing data and analyzing said data in GIS. During the course, participants will complete the following:

    • Plan autonomous drone missions using inexpensive, yet powerful planning software
    • Fly multi-rotor drones manually and autonomously
    • Learn how to process imagery into usable products, such as image mosaics, surface models and indices using Pix4D software
    • Learn the basics of visible and near-infrared (VNIR) remote sensing
    • Generate 3D surface products, complete volumetric surveys and create vegetation indices
    • Ground truth information using Collector for ArcGIS

    Before taking the course, it is recommended (though not required) that users have a basic level of GIS understanding and experience operating quadcopter drones.

    Length: 2 days

    Fee: $700
