Reno, Nevada (PRWEB) September 04, 2014
UAS MAPPING 2014 RENO - this 2-day UAS symposium will showcase UAS in operation including flights over the first UAS Mapping Calibration Test Course designed to be a permanent facility for the validation and accuracy assessment of UAS sensor payloads. General Sessions will focus on the mapping and remote sensing aspects of unmanned acquisitions with the goal to provide practical information on UAS flight planning, acquisition, data processing and map production. National and international speakers will address current-day and developing UAS applications. Academia and research institutions will inform on existing educational and training opportunities. Survey, mapping, and engineering firms will be on-hand to share their experience and further their UAS implementation strategies. Government agencies will share information on the development of national and international mapping programs. UAS firms will benefit from meeting the managers of the Nevada UAS program and obtaining first-hand information on utilization of the Nevada UAS Test Site.
Attendees will be drawn to this symposium to obtain insight into UAS technologies from the perspective of ASPRS scientists, researchers, and practitioners – the people who have historically provided the scientific advancement of airborne and spaceborne imaging. In addition, the invited speakers and attendees reach far beyond the bounds of ASPRS to encompass the visionaries and innovators of today. The symposium organizers are targeting a broad spectrum of people at this first UAS MAPPING symposium, including:
- Agriculture / Precision Agriculture Users
- Wine Growers / Viticulturists
- Construction Engineers / Civil Engineers
- Transportation Industry Representatives
- Energy Industry Representatives (Transmission Lines / Oil and Gas Pipelines)
- Mining Industry Representatives
- Urban Planners
- Government Agency Representatives
- Environmental Engineers
- Survey and Mapping Firms
- UAS Service Providers
- UAS Software Developers
- UAS Component Manufacturers
- Academia and Research Institutions
- Geospatial Professionals
- UAS Enthusiasts
- This is the first UAS MAPPING symposium – focused on the application of UAS technologies to survey, mapping and remote sensing endeavors.
- This is the first developed test course at a FAA-designated test site.
- This is the first symposium with on-site processing and analysis of test course data.
The event is organized to provide ample time for networking between developers, practitioners, researchers, consultants, future users, and managers of programs that plan to utilize UAS technology. Attendees will also be able to interview the managers of the newly established test site to gain insight into plans for incorporation of commercial UAS operations into the national airspace.
The symposium venue is the Reno Ballroom, a modern, 32,700 square-foot, non-gaming facility in downtown Reno, Nevada. The symposium hotel is located across the street in the Eldorado which offers a special room rate for all symposium attendees.
Founded in 1934, the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) is a scientific association serving over 5,000 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.
