Learn about the use of small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) for high accuracy site mapping and volumetric analysis. This webinar will outline the steps necessary to successfully conduct a mapping operation, including the accuracy levels and necessary collection techniques needed for various mine site mapping products. Find out the applications most suited to sUAS mapping as well as situations where other mapping approaches might be more appropriate, and hear about the pros and cons of the wide variety of sUAS mapping business models. Following this webinar, the attendee should have a good knowledge of: 

  • Where sUAS mapping technology is appropriate
  • The legal requirements for service provider or owner/operator deployments
  • The accuracy requirements for common site mapping products
  • The ROI considerations and business models for sUAS mapping

Presenter: Lewis Graham, GeoCue Group & AirGon

A Must Attend Event!

This colloquium will teach participants how to do mapping with DJI Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2 drones. The lecture will start with an overview of drone mapping and briefly discuss the sweet spots for drone mapping that considers both FAA restrictions as well as the physical capabilities of the Phantom/Inspire drones.   Camera calibration techniques will be presented along with the contribution that calibration makes to overall project accuracy.  The audience will be introduced to new hardware devices and collection techniques that can be used to achieve the centimeters-level positioning necessary to do topographic mapping and differential volumetrics.  The complete data processing workflow from point cloud generation through product creation using elements of GeoCue’s Bring Your Own Drone (BYOD) Mapping Kit will be presented.


Following this colloquium, participants will have a complete understanding of the capabilities of Phantom/Inspire-class drones and the techniques that can be used with these devices to do serious mapping projects.

A registration fee of $125 will be required to attend. Lunch will be provided.

Registration is avilable through Commercial UAV Expo conference registration. Use promotional code AIRGON.
