Upcoming COURSES


This workshop is designed to provide an overview of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) technology, regulations and image analysis in support of drone applications.


It is targeted towards participants with little to no experience in UAS technology who are interested exploring practical applications of UAS for biology. Participants will gain practice conducting flight operations and using geospatial technologies for monitoring and mapping natural resources.

An optional Mentored Research Project takes place at the end of the workshop and will allow participants to practice what they’ve learned through a project designed by
David Bird, Ornithologist and Editor of The Journal of UAS.
