Join us for an exclusive course to learn why and how to use drones to create accurate, geo-referenced, interactive maps and 3D models

From magnificent aerial videos to practical workplace tools, this emerging technology expands into more use cases every day. Colleges and universities around the world have taken notice and have begun integrating drones into their programs. This technology is extremely engaging for students when presented on how drones and the resulting maps and models can be leveraged for research applications.


In this hands-on course, we will show you how drone mapping software can produce, visualize, and analyze geo-referenced outputs – orthomosaics, 3D point clouds, digital elevation models, contour maps, and 3D mesh models – and how to integrate those within a collaborative workflow for your Geography curriculum.


Successful incorporation of drone technology will be demonstrated during this 4-hour workshop. Case studies from the world’s leading companies and universities will be presented. We will explain how aerial photogrammetry from drone-based imagery is used and will cover the best practices for capturing aerial drone data. We will also discuss challenges faced and the effective solutions that can be implemented.
