Take off and explore the exciting applications of remotely collecting data with drones. Learn about aerial video and imagery, orthophotography, 3D modeling, and FAA flying rules and regulations from a commercially licensed remote pilot. Operating an UAS (unmanned aerial system) can produce data unobtainable from traditional methods from the ground. The latest drones and accompanying software allow for the monitoring and tracking of erosion and the calculation of sediment stockpiles. Vegetation health can be monitored and mapped from the sky using NDVI cameras, highlighting specific areas that need attention. Beautiful imagery and high definition video can be collected, and unreachable locations such as beaver dams and dangerous slopes can be inspected and monitored with ease. Attend this workshop to discover the countless conservation opportunities that can be revealed through UAS data collection.
