This course covers many similar topics as "Geomatics in a UAV World" However it is designed for those who wish to take a series of courses on the topic of unmanned airborne systems. It begins with a discussion of the game changing aspects of using UAS in geospatial applications. Factors that must be considered before deciding to use an UAS to solve a problem are covered. Operational issues including preparing the organization, planning and operating the aircraft are covered. UAS photogrammetry’s ins and outs are discussed, concluding with accuracy discussion and imagery and data product examples.


1. How UAS may change the geospatial “game” is discussed.
2. Types of UAS are covered.
3. Operational considerations are presented
4. UAS photogrammetry processes and data products are also presented.
