Over 25 participants representing four countries, including 16 participants from the UAE, have recently completed a specialised training course on remote sensing and photogrammetry techniques using aerial images from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)/Drones.

Held at the International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA) from 20 to 29 March 2017, the international training course and workshop on using UAVs for remote sensing and photogrammetry was the first of its kind in the Gulf region.

A team of 13 leading international experts from the USA, Spain, Japan, Canada, Malaysia, the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain shared knowledge and experience on a wide variety of UAVs and remote sensing. The training course and workshop were organised in partnership between Falcon Eye Drones, UAE, Arabian Gulf University (AGU), Bahrain, International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA), UAE, and BCN Drone Center, Spain.

The course & workshop combined theory and hands-on training with real UAV data sets and case studies of real applications. Falcon Eye Drones together with BCN Drone Center provided practical experience from flight planning to complete photogrammetry workflow to get the final results.
