Join Esri and Freefly Systems for full day drone imagery workshop!
Whether you are new to using an unoccupied aerial vehicle (UAV) or you have been flying for years this workshop will offer tips and tricks for flight planning, image analysis, fleet management, and how to make shareable information products from drone imagery. The ArcGIS platform supports an end-to-end UAV workflow that can begin processing in both the cloud and in offline environments using desktop machines. We will demonstrate and discuss how to plan and use the autonomous flight planning software in the Esri platform to build imagery products from 2D and 3D GIS data. We will show the UAV created imagery products from different types of flights and the different types of processing that is available. We will also explore and explain how to configure these processing steps. After the imagery has been processed and we have created the derived products we will show how to analyze and share information using the ArcGIS platform.
Additionally, Esri partner Freefly Systems will be presenting their Site Scan integration solution with the Astro drone. The Freefly Astro is a made in the USA solution to drone mapping. The Astro is compatible with Site Scan for ArcGIS and can carry a variety of imaging payload from 61-megapixel RGB cameras, to thermal, and Lidar units.
