#maptimeDavis: Photogrammetry & Working with Drone Data

March 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Learn the tools and workflows for working with drones for capturing spatial data!

Please RSVP via our Registration Link


In this workshop, I will introduce drones as a research tool using real-world examples and how to get started from the ground up. I’ll cover permitting, licensing, equipment, training, UC rules and regulations, industry jobs, networking, and more. I’ll also lead participants in various drone software programs, from mission planning and autopiloting to mosaicking and georeferencing with sample datasets.

Participants will learn the tools and workflows for working with drones, and gain an understanding of the software for processing the imagery acquired.

Concepts Covered:

Speaker: Clancy McConnell

Clancy is a PhD candidate in geography at UC Davis. He uses drones in research and industry work, and teaches the Intro to GIS course on campus.

Location: Seminar Room (room 1025) in the UC Davis PSEL (Physical Sciences & Engineering Library). Zoom details will be emailed upon registration for people wishing to attend online.
