About ASPRS

Founded in 1934, the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) is a scientific association serving over 7,000 professional members around the world. Our mission is to advance knowledge and improve understanding of mapping sciences to promote the responsible applications of photogrammetry, remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), and supporting technologies. 

The role of ASPRS in UAS technologies:

Educate the public, the media and our elected representatives about the scientific, societal and commercial benefits to be realized

Educate these same groups on the differences between military, law enforcement and commercial uses of these technologies, to move the discussion beyond privacy concerns

Cooperate with other stakeholder communities, societies and organizations in the development of an enabling environment supportive of UAS in geographic information science

Explore the need for new certifications or changes to certification criteria, to address UAS-specific topics as applied to mapping and remote sensing

Explore the needs for new guidelines and standards, or changes to existing guidelines and standards, to address UAS-specific topics as applied to mapping and remote sensing

Inform our membership on regulatory landscape for UAS as it evolves

Coordinate with FAA Test Sites for the creation of UAS calibration facilities

‘Change is in the Air’ – The First of its kind UAS Symposium

”Change is in the Air.” This is the tagline of our fall symposium, which denotes the excitement and also the angst that goes along with change.

“What interests me most about the conference is the different types of people that will be there. It’s not just photogrammetrists, it’s not just law enforcement, it’s not just firefighters. It’s different types of people from the data collection side and the data consumption side, and it’s only really when you get those people together that you really start to talk about how do we create systems that are going to work well for all of these interests.” – Brandon Basso, PH.D., Senior R&D Research Engineer at 3D Robotics

Dr. Basso will be co-presenting the opening keynote, and also contributing as a panelist. Watch the full clip of his thoughts on why he’s excited to be a part of the ASPRS UAS Technical Demonstration and Symposium.

A full line-up of events is provided on the symposium website at http://uasreno.org.

EXPANSION OF LIVE DEMO OPPORTUNITES AT UAS MAPPING 2014 RENO

Reno, NV The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) has added an indoor rotary-wing UAV live demonstration to the UAS Technical Demonstration and Symposium being held in Reno Nevada on October 21 and 22. This indoor demonstration will be held in the evening of the first day of the symposium (Tuesday 10/21) following a fixed-wing live demonstration at the Nevada Test Site Stead Airport and following a networking social on the exhibition floor at the Reno Ballroom. It will be a jam-packed day of sessions and demonstrations culminating in an opportunity for hands-on and up-close flying of rotary-wing or copter unmanned vehicles.

The indoor UAV demonstration will be held at the spacious Reno Event Center located across the street from the symposium venue (Reno Ballroom) and the symposium hotel (The Eldorado). The arena floor at the Event Center is 256’ x 212’ with a 43’-high ceiling, easily accommodating the needs of the flight of small rotary-wing unmanned aircraft.

A full line-up of events is provided on the symposium website at http://uasreno.org. See you in Reno!

UAS Industry Leaders Participating in UAS MAPPING 2014 RENO

Reno, NV – The first UAS technical symposium sponsored by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) announces that industry leaders in the UAS commercial industry are onboard for UAS MAPPING 2014 RENO!

The technical program has been designed to provide practical information on sensor types and platforms as well as soup-to-nuts details on planning a mission, controlling the mission, flying the mission, and processing the data. ASPRS is “The Imaging and Geospatial Information Society” and its members will be evaluating issues such as accuracy and data quality. Technical presenters include David Ward of Silent Falcon, Dr. Bernd Lutz of Multirotor Service Drone, Baptiste Tripard of senseFly, Ruedi Wagner of Leica Geosystems, Wolfgang Juchmann of Velodyne, Antoine Martin of Pix4D, Heather James of Kitware, Dr. Hank Theiss of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, David Dvorak of Field of View, Vince Ambrosia of NASA, Nazlin Kanji of AeroVironment, to name a few. Visionaries such as Chris Anderson of 3D Robotics, Peter Birch of Google, Jonathan Evans of Skyward, Colin Snow of Drone Analysis, and Gerald Kinn of ESRI round out the technical program providing a vision of our UAS future in keeping with the symposium theme of “Change is in the Air”. The speakers listed are a subset of the full list of UAS industry leaders that are part of the technical program. The full list of speaker’s biographies and presentation abstracts are available on the symposium website at http://uasreno/speakers.

 

UAS developers, sensor manufacturers, software developers, government agencies, survey/mapping firms, agriculture firms, and companies from UAS-related industries are signing up for exhibit space and sponsorships. Exhibitors and sponsors include Velodyne, GeoCue, ESRI, Airware, Aeryon, DroneDeploy, Pix4D, Simactive, Topcon, and Trimble, to name a few. Exhibit space and sponsorship opportunities are still available.

Attendees at the symposium will not be just sitting in their chairs. The program includes networking events, live demos and opportunities for hands-on experiences.

See you in Reno!
