UAV Remote Sensing Applications (6th Edition)
|Dates: 13th to 17th June 2016|
Place: BCN Drone Center
|Number of Students: 24|
|Official Certificate: Yes|
One week course about photogrammetry and remote sensing techniques using UAV aerial images. A broad board of top level UAV professionals and researchers has been invited to share their knowledge and experience on a wide variety of UAV and remote sensing related topics.
The theory is combined with hands-on training with real UAV datasets and case studios of real applications explained by the professionals that carried them. Furthermore, during the full week, practical UAV mission flights are carried out in order to give to the participants a real case view of all topics discussed.
At the end of the course the student will have a clear view of how to set up a complete UAV mission pipeline, from UAV system selection to image post-processing techniques, taking into account the main characteristics of each mission type. This course will help the participants to acquire all the knowledge they need to select the UAV system that best suits to their application, correctly operate them and which remote-sensing techniques can be used to obtain information from the images. Those that already have experience working with UAV systems will benefit from learning state of the art techniques, obtaining a broad view of all UAV fields, discovering new applications and performing networking with other participants from around the world.
What people said from previous editions:
"The course was great and I achieved my objective: have a deeper knowledge about UAVs. Now we have all knowledge and tools to be able to select the best UAV system for our application."
"I really liked to have lessons about so many different topics; they have given me a broad view of UAV tech and applications".
"I have found very useful the practical sessions in order to discover new software tools that are going to be useful in our job."
"Great course with great people in a great place."
More than 200 participants have already came to the BCN Drone Center UAV Test Site in our training opportunities, all of them with great and interesting ideas related with UAV technology, so we have kept room for a session in which all interested participants can optionally make a 10-15 minute talk about their project, products, ideas, experience..., so all other participants can know about them.
