The program has been announced for the UAS MAPPING 2015 RENO symposium, sponsored by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS).
The second-annual conference will be held Sept. 29-30 at the Reno Ballroom in downtown Reno, Nev. In addition to the technical symposium, ASPRS is also sponsoring a workshop on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) data processing on Sept. 28.
This year’s symposium, focused on UAS mapping, is organized to provide the latest information on technology and software development, as well ancillary issues that impact the UAS mapping industry.
Keynote speakers include Skyward’s Jonathan Evans, who is working toward the integration of aerial robotics into worldwide airspace, and Unmanned Experts’ Keven Gambold, a combat pilot with more than 3,000 hours of manned and unmanned flight experience.
Symposium attendees will be brought up to date on the state of the industry by UAS analysts Colin Snow of Drone Analyst and Mike Tully of Aerial Services Inc. A special session is included to highlight education and training of UAS geospatial professionals.
By popular demand, says ASPRS, the event is designed to bring presentations highlighting real-world UAS mapping applications: transportation, survey design-build, infrastructure assessment, natural resource monitoring and agriculture. In addition, the program will include live demonstrations of UAS technology.
