Foundations of Aerial Surveying

Foundations of Aerial Surveying Course

In our Foundations of Aerial Mapping course you will learn to use the revolutionary product from PropellerAero – AeroPoints – ground control points (GCPs) with built in GPS to collect accurate positional data in conjunction with Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) photography. RPAS are used to conduct aerial surveying and in most cases GCPs are needed to relate the data to a coordinate reference framework. Establishment and marking of GCPs is usually carried out by a surveyor with survey grade GPS equipment. AeroPoints simplify this process by providing an all in one marking and measuring solution.

What will I learn?

UAVAIR will commence the course with basic aerial survey theory and applications of RPAS mapping. Students will learn how to plan and fly RPAS over a site to record imagery suitable for mapping, using AeroPoints to establish position and elevation. Project data will be processed on the Propeller cloud based platform and students will be taught to interpret and quality and data outputs. Finally, students will shown the analytic and reporting tools available inside the Propeller platform.

Who should do this course?

Surveyors, RPAS operators, engineers, scientists or anyone required to produce spatial information
