RS&GIS Technical Workshop Description

Remote Pilot Training: Level 1

Level 1 Remote Pilot Training is appropriate for participants who have very little exposure to the operation of small UAS (sUAS). The objective of this course is for students to gain an understanding of multicopter sUAS while obtaining the skills required to safely conduct solo flight. Much of this class is devoted to hands-on flying. Topics include UAS components, multicopter control, principles of flight and hands-on flight. No prior experience is necessary. This course is taught by Northwestern Michigan College Aviation in coordination with RS&GIS at Michigan State University.

Remote Pilot Training: Level 2

Level 2 Remote Pilot Training is appropriate for those pilots who possess the basic skills required for solo flight. The objective of the course is for students to learn the essential elements required to safely conduct commercial flight and mapping operations in the National Airspace System. Much of this class is devoted to hands-on planning and autonomous flights. Topics include airspace, flight planning, flight preparation, specific flight planning tools, and hands-on autonomous flight. Before taking this class, it is recommended that participants complete Level 1 Remote Pilot Training or have commensurate experience. This course is taught by Northwestern Michigan College Aviation in coordination with RS&GIS at Michigan State University.

Drone-to-GIS: Level 1

Level 1 Drone-to-GIS training is appropriate for participants that wish to process overlapping static images collected by drones into usable products, such as image mosaics and surface models. Topics include an Introduction to GIS and Remote Sensing, Drone-to-GIS workflows, photogrammetric principles and natural color drone imagery processing using Pix4D. Before taking the course, it is recommended that users either understand the process of capturing overlapping images with drones or complete Level 2 Remote Pilot Training.

Drone-to-GIS: Level 2

Level 2 Drone-to-GIS training is appropriate for participants that wish to process multi-spectral images, understand GIS tools for data analysis & manipulation and learn how to integrate drone imagery into mobile GIS activities. Topics include Multi-spectral processing using Pix4D, GIS tools, drone data GIS processing (e.g., volumetric surveys, visualizing topography) and mobile GIS for ground-truthing. Before taking the course, it is recommended that users either understand the process of processing overlapping images into GIS products or complete Level 1 Drone-to-GIS Training.
