Unmanned Aircraft System Remote Sensing Workshop
Introduction to equipment, applications, operations, and processing methods
When: June 21-22, 2018
Where: Oregon State University, Crop and Soil Science Building (Room 138)
The unmanned aircraft system (UAS) Environmental Remote Sensing Workshop offers current and practical information on UAS regulations, platforms, sensors, and software. A portion of the course will involve collecting and working with imagery from a UAS flight so that participants get applied remote sensing experience.
Day 1 (June 21)
9:00 to 9:30 UAS applications and the regulatory flight environment in the US.
9:30 to 10:30 UAS Platforms: Types and state of the art
10:30 to 11:00 Classroom introductions, coffee break and UAS equipment display
11:00 to 11:45 UAS sensors I: Types, state of the art, and applications
11:45 to 12:15 UAS Sensors II: Selection considerations
12:15 to 1:30 Lunch
1:30 to 2:30 UAS operations I: Planning a photogrammetric aerial survey (RGB + multispectral) with a DJI
Phantom 4 Pro and UGCS mission planning software.
Topics: topographic relief effects, overlap, assumptions, common issues, camera
2:30 to 5:30 UAS operations II: Ground control, pre-flight, safety, and flight operations
5:30 – 6:30 Social hour
DAY 2 (June 22)
9:00 to 10:00 UAS image processing I: Considerations and software.
Topics: Structure from Motion, georeferencing, image pre-processing
10:00 to 11:00 UAS operations II: Establishing references
Topics: Ground control, georeferencing, spectral calibration
11:00 to 11:15 Coffee break
11:15 to 12:00 UAS image processing II: Hands-on Agisoft with multispectral imagery
12:00 to 1:15 Lunch
1:15 to 2:30 UAS image processing II: Hands-on Agisoft with multispectral imagery
2:30 to 2:45 Coffee break
2:45 to 5:00 UAS image processing III: Quantitative analysis of multispectral imagery in R
Topics: Processing tools, spectral indices, examining spatial trends, unsupervised
