Short Course: SUA Photogrammetry
Do you want to know how to plan and process your SUA (Small Unmanned Aircraft)/drone imagery to obtain quality survey output and a professional edge for your business and clients?
This two-day course is packed with advice on how to maximise the impact of data collected by your SUA. It will cover flight planning for optimum coverage and processing hints to ensure accurate data delivery. Led by a highly experienced tutor, students will explore the art of the possible using theory, workflows and case studies.
This course is lecture room based but with a maximum of twelve students to maintain a level of intimacy and interaction. It involves a mixture of presentations and software demonstrations.
Delegates who are interested in a broader scope to include terrestrial imagery and require hands-on experience of using cameras and photogrammetry software should attend the three-day Photogrammetry and Digital Imaging Course.
The use of SUA (Small Unmanned Aircraft) to collect data has rapidly increased in the last few years. Not only surveyors but engineers, archaeologists, environmentalists, conservationists and numerous other disciplines are exploiting the advantage of data collected by a small, agile, airborne platform.
Using SUAs for the aerial survey of smaller sites is a fraction of the cost of conventional aircraft and the newer software algorithms are perfect for the analysis of the many smaller and more randomly distributed images taken on an SUA project.
