The symposium program is announced for the second annual technical UAS MAPPING 2015 RENO symposium sponsored by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS). The dates of the conference are September 29 & 30, 2015 at the Reno Ballroom in downtown Reno, Nevada. In addition to the technical symposium, ASPRS is also sponsoring a workshop on UAS Data Processing on Monday, September 28, 2015.
The symposium is focused on UAS mapping and this year’s program is organized to provide the latest information on UAS technology and software development as well as looking at ancillary issues that impact the UAS mapping industry.
The program includes keynote speakers Jonathan Evans of Skyward.io who is working toward the integration of aerial robotics into the worldwide airspace, and Keven Gambold, CEO of Unmanned Experts, a leading UAS consulting company and a combat pilot with more 3000 hours of manned and unmanned flight. 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. Speakers have been selected to provide the latest information on mapping tools and advances in computer vision, data processing, and software applications, as well as a look to the future in equipment and supporting technology. By popular demand, the program 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 demonstration of UAS technology in flight at the ASPRS UAS Calibration Test Range.
The technical program outline is available online; abstracts, bios and video introductions will be online soon. Exhibiting and sponsorship opportunities are still available! Register now and enjoy early-bird registration rates through August 15, 2015.
