About this Workshop: The emerging technology of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) is enabling GIS professionals to acquire high quality aerial data of project sites in a timely fashion. The availability of lower cost drones, high-quality lightweight cameras, specialized sensors, and more user-friendly software is making it easier to deploy the technology and take advantage of the benefits. Attend this workshop and learn more about the UAS industry, using different types of drones for work, corresponding FAA regulations, and software such as Esri Site Scan for creating 2D and 3D data in a GIS environment. See firsthand what the data deliverables may consist of and how the data are used in mapping applications

Intended Audience: People interested in professional use of drones for remote sensing and geospatial applications within government, academic, or private commercial organizations.  All levels of users welcome, though this will appeal most to beginner to intermediate UAS users.
