Aerial Mapping and Modeling

High-quality maps can be produced more quickly and cheaply than with traditional methods, and the demand for drone mapping services is growing rapidly. This workshop is designed to teach students how to use the latest drone mapping technology to collect, analyze and export high-quality mapping and modeling data for commercial use.

Upcoming Course

Summer dates, times and cost will be available soon.

This course is best suited for those who:

  • Are new to mapping yet as well as those with mapping experience looking to specialize in aerial mapping
  • Are interested in obtaining a drone job in aerial mapping
  • Looking to successfully execute aerial mapping missions
