About Site Drone Mapping Training

In this course , you will learn the basics of the drone mapping technology currently available. Drone technology has been crucial in developing modern GIS applications and for maintaining up-to-date GIS data. Remote-controlled drones have played an important role in lowering the cost of collecting geospatial data and making it easier to collect spatial data in dangerous environments. Since the integration of GPS technology with these devices, it has also become possible to fly drones over much larger distances and beyond visible line of sight.

Additional technology advancements — in areas such as artificial intelligence, imaging and image recognition, edge computing and remote sensing — have contributed to enabling drones to be used for more efficient and comprehensive GIS analysis.

Here are a few other examples of GIS analysis that can be enhanced with drones:

  • Matching consumer demographic data with spatial information about the places they live
  • Validation of existing GIS data sets
  • Weather monitoring and prediction
  • Habitat surveying
  • Landscape modeling
  • Assessing the aftermath of a disaster.
  • Tracking wild animals and assets
  •  Used to acquire the Chemical composition of an Agricultural area.
