2 cr

Description Provides a theoretical foundation for the use of drone aerial systems to collect geospatial data for analysis. Examines principles of remote sensing, photogrammetry, and GIS relevant to drone aerial systems. Enabling technologies (sensors, GPS), data collection procedures, data processing (Structure from Motion algorithms), data products (point clouds, orthophotos), and appropriate analysis techniques are investigated. Geospatial application areas include terrain modeling, rangeland/natural resource management, precision agriculture, forestry/vegetation, natural disasters, and geomorphology.
