Requirements

Description

GIS and Drone Technologies are both powerful tools for assisting people in analyzing the world we inhabit. Whether you are someone with GIS skills looking to add drones to your toolbelt, or a drone pilot who wants to level up their deliverable products, you are in the right place. Both these skills require very similar mindsets, such as an attention to detail, focus and accuracy. If you can do one, you can do the other, so why not do both!

This course is best for those who have some familiarity with either GIS concepts or drone mapping, or those that are comfortable in learning new software packages. The course is perfect for those who have drone data that they have collected and want to analyze it beyond running it through Drone Deploy and the like. Using your DEM data, you will learn to create elevation contours, calculate the terrain's steepness and which way the sun is hitting the ground. You will also learn the skills to go online and acquire existing data layers such as town boundaries, watershed areas, and streams and overlay them atop your orthomosaics. From there, you add professional borders, titles, scale bars and your logo and produce professional client deliverables, thereby surpassing your competition.

And possibly saving the best for last, this course includes a treasure trove of GIS data from the FAA. In the lecture resources section, you will find a Geopackage and QGIS Project file with over a dozen pre-symbolized layers including labeled Classed Airspace polygons (B, C, D, E, E to Surface, MOAs, Restricted and Prohibited Airspaces, etc.) and airport locations. You will learn how to overlay these shapes atop dozens of basemaps, including aerial photos, open street map data, and Sectional Charts. Just the ability to produce custom, titled, scaled, centered Sectionals is worth the modest investment. Your deliverable game is about to take off!

If you are a GIS professional with an interest in drones, or a drone pilot with an interest in producing better deliverables, this course is for you!
