How are drones transforming surveying? Join Tom Range, managing partner and COO of Air-Terra 3D LLC for this lecture and outdoor demonstration on unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) or drones (also known as unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs). Discussion topics include: 
  • An introduction to the use of UASs and surveying applications
  • Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) new small drone rule - known as Part 107 - became effective on August 29, 2016. We'll discuss this rule and what happened to the Section 333 exemption grant in use by some firms
Then, we'll step outside for some demonstration flights with data collection, small data set workflow, and how you process data.
