What the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) calls the first technical unmanned aerial systems (UAS) symposium will be held Oct. 21-22 in Reno, Nev.
Sponsored by the ASPRS and held at the Reno Ballroom, the symposium will showcase UAS in operation, including flights over the first UAS mapping calibration test course, designed to be a permanent facility for the validation and accuracy assessment of UAS sensor payloads.
General sessions will focus on the mapping and remote sensing aspects of unmanned acquisitions, including UAS flight planning, acquisition, data processing and map production.
Representatives will be on hand from academia and research institutions; survey, mapping and engineering firms; and government agencies. The managers of the Nevada UAS program will also provide first-hand information about using the state’s test site.
ASPRS scientists, researchers and practitioners will also be at the event. The group says this is the first UAS mapping symposium focused on the application of UAS technologies for surveying, mapping and remote sensing, as well as the first with on-site processing and analysis of test course data.
The deadline for early registration has been extended to Sep. 12. More information about the symposium can be found here.
