Great introduction to UASs. I feel the inclusion of "Geomatics" in the title is misleading however.

Course Availability

This course is only available to trainees days after purchase. It would need to be repurchased by the trainee if not completed in the allotted time period. This course is no longer available. You will need to repurchase if you wish to take the course again.

Description

This course is an overview of how UAVs may be integrated in a geomatics organization. It is recommended for those considering the use of unmanned airborne systems in geospatial applications. This course is useful for owners, principals and executive to get familiar with UAVs, particularly if they don't plan on covering similar, but expanded material in the other courses in the UAS series. Types of UAVs are discussed, and operational characteristics that must be considered when planning UAV operations are presented. UAV photogrammetry is briefly covered, as are the data products that can be generated from it. The course concludes with potential and actual UAV applications in geomatics and what types of regulatory concerns an operator of UAVs must consider.
