Marc Langley, Hartford, CT-based CEO at Airborne Works & founder of the National Public Safety Drone Donation Program, promises that those who attend his classes will receive the best possible opportunity to leverage their newfound knowledge into steady income within the UAV / UAS industry. Specifically he will show how one can generate 1-4 cm horizontal & 3-8cm vertical accuracy with GNSS points real-time with a GIS collector and using this data for outstanding 3D mapping deliverables for your clients. He will take you from the theory of photogrammetry, how sensors work both aerial and ground-based, to providing vital data for post-processing. How to acquire data sets through automated missions on different platforms, producing precision-sharp 2D and 3D products. The proper use and application of ground control points (GCP) collection. He will provide case study results and also touch on how lidar can be married into
your workflow. “Some of the workflows to be shared are the same we pioneered for the EPA, and other, first of their kind environmental mapping missions” he says, “We have been told by the EPA our work as help save countless ours in the field” Bullet points for attendees are:

  • Photogrammetry theory / accuracy
  • Drone mapping / surveying planning apps, the online/cloud-based and desktop software aerial imagery processing applications
  • Flight deployment
  • Ground-control points layout
  • Multi-rotor or fixed-wing drones mapping best sites
  • Mapping data workflows
  • Processing data
  • DSM vs. DTM: What’s the difference?
  • Data analytic and reporting tools
  • Integration of ground-based Lidar data for enhanced
    deliverables
  • Little known growth industries for drone operators

Takeaway:
Those who attend this session, be they beginners or more experienced drone operators, will walk away with a much better understanding of UAV mapping and modeling theory as well as learn the latest tools and workflows. They will also have a much clearer understanding of how to best quiz a client so as to assure the best possible deliverable. Attendees will also have learned how to pitch new and existing services and other offers that you will learn about from our other speakers.
