First class graduation from course and workshop of remote sensing and photogrammetry using drone

The first-of-its-kind drone training in Gulf region for remote sensing

By | Event, News | No Comments

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.

Good news for those who are keen in learning and certified in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry. Falcon Eye Drones in partnering with Arabican Gulf University, BCN Drone Center, and International Center for Biosaline Agriculture, Dubai, UAE (ICBA) organising the first Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Course and Workshop in GCC.

This is a two-week extensive course and workshop on remote-sensing and photogrammetry techniques using aerial images from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). A broad group of top UAV professionals and academics has been invited to share their knowledge and experience on a wide variety of UAV and remote-sensing related topics. The theory is combined with hands-on training with real UAV datasets and case studies of real applications explained by the professionals concerned. During the full two weeks, practical UAV mission flights will be carried out in order to give participants a real case view of all topics discussed on state-of-the-art hardware and software.

At the end of the course, participants will have a clear understanding of how to integrate drones into geomatics projects by setting up a complete UAV mission pipeline, from UAV system selection to image post-processing techniques, taking into account the main characteristics of each mission type and objectives. This course will help participants to acquire all the knowledge they need to select the UAV system that best suits to their application, correctly operate them and identify which remote-sensing analytical techniques can be used to obtain information from the images.
