ASPRS Adds LiDAR Sidebar to Reno Program

Bethesda, MD – As a result of intense interest in the future of the LAS format, the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) has decided to add a LiDAR session to the program for its upcoming ASPRS UAS Technical Demonstration and Symposium in Reno, NV. The LiDAR Sidebar will take advantage of the many experts that will be attending the conference to discuss the new compressed data formats that are attracting attention.

The session will take place at 6 pm on Wednesday 30 September 2015, shortly after the main conference closes. The format being planned is a panel discussion, with each topic introduced briefly by an invited expert, followed by discussion, where users of the various formats are welcome to express their thoughts. Likely topics include: the future of LAS; the rise of compressed LiDAR formats (multiple topics); OGC Point Cloud Domain Working Group; user expectations of LiDAR deliverables; applicability of LAS to terrestrial LiDAR, mobile mapping systems and the relationship to ASTM E57.

Please be sure to check out the full program for the second annual ASPRS UAS MAPPING 2015 RENO. Even if you cannot attend the one-day UAS Data Processing Workshop on Monday Sept 28 will want to arrive by 6PM in order to attend the welcoming social, sponsored by DroneDeploy.

ASPRS-SPONSORED UAS DATA PROCESSING WORKSHOP – REGISTRATION OPEN

Following on the huge popularity of last year’s workshop, the second annual UAS Mapping Reno workshop for small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) will be held on Monday, September 28th at the Eldorado hotel. The workshop begins at 8:30 AM and concludes at 5:00 PM. The registration fee is $95 and includes lunch.

The workshop is aimed at providing prospective sUAS mapping users a very practical overview of the hardware and software components that comprise a metric data collection and processing system. The workshop will address topics such as:

  • An overview of sUAS hardware
  • Camera technology
  • Safety
  • Project geometric control and accuracy
  • Mission Planning
  • Flying a mission
  • Post-flight QC
  • Data processing
  • Data exploitation 

Participants will be provided trial licenses of data processing and exploitation software as well as sample data sets. These licenses will be valid for several weeks following the event, allowing users to practice the techniques learned in the workshop.

Rather than a generalized approach to the topics, the workshop will use concrete examples of hardware and software. A realization of the PX4 autopilot and associated Mission Planner software will be presented as the control system. Discussions of GNSS hardware will cover current sUAS positioning products on the market. The software processing workflows will employ ubiquitous point cloud generation tools such as Pix4D and PhotoScan. At the conclusion of the day, participants will have the answers to questions such as:

  • Are my projects suitable for sUAS mapping?
  • Which is better – fixed wing or rotorcraft?
  • How do I safely operate an sUAS?
  • Does camera type matter?
  • Can I achieve my accuracy target with sUAS technology?
  • What are the options for geometrically controlling a project?
  • What software suite is required to obtain my desired products?

Please join us for this fast paced, informative session. Register Here.

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!

GeoCue to host sUAS Workshop following ASPRS UAS Conference

GeoCue_180x180From GeoCue Group News:

GeoCue Group will host a one day workshop on small Unmanned Aerial Systems production in conjunction with the ASPRS Reno UAS conference. The workshop will be on Thursday, October 23rd (the day following the conference) beginning at 9 AM and ending at 3:30 PM. A working lunch will be provided. Topics to be covered include:

  • Planning an sUAS mission
  • Ground control and check points
  • Uploading the mission plan to the autopilot
  • Flying the mission (simulation only)
  • Quick look analysis using PhotoScan Pro
  • Preprocessing to a point cloud and ortho mosaic using PhotoScan Pro and Pix4D Mapper
  • Quality assurance in LP360 for sUAS
  • Creating analysis and output products using LP360 for sUAS

The workshop will consist of both theoretical considerations as well as numerous workflow demonstrations. We will be showing an overview of how to construct your own sUAS system aimed at small area metric mapping, covering details from telemetry radio selection to vehicle launching and recovery. We will be using data from actual collected projects and will cover the wide range of conditions and errors that affect project outcomes. This workshop will provide attendees with a detailed overview, based on actual experience, of what is and is not possible with this new and exciting technology.

The price of the workshop is $75 and includes lunch. Space is limited and will fill up very quickly so please indicate your intention to attend by sending your contact information to alove@geocue.com.
