Drone survey school offers three types of trainings that combines 30 years of hand on experience with aerial, hydrographic and land surveys to teach you just that fundamental knowledge required to become a real aerial drone surveyor.
Drones haven proven to be an excellent platform for topographic surveys. Equipped with a camera or a LiDAR system they can cover small to medium sized areas quickly and in a safe manner. Besides aerial photography and video, aerial surveying is currently one of the best and most successful commercial applications for drones.
Investments to start surveying with a drone are relatively small. For under 10,000 euros or dollars you can be in business. But buying a good toolkit at your local hardware store will not turn you into a good and experienced carpenter and owning the latest mapping drone will likewise not make you a surveyor.
Drone Survey School offers the following three courses to make sure you have the fundamental knowledge required.
The latest course that we offer is expert mapping with Pix4D mapper. Drone Survey School is an official, accredited and certified training institute for Pix4D mapper.
The course will take place over three days. The first day we will look at the theory of photogrammetry, using GNSS and geodesy. These are fundamentals that every aerial surveyor should understand prior to capturing data and processing. In the following two days we will look hands-on at using Pix4D mapper. We will concentrate on those aspects where common mistakes are made.
For the hands-on training students should bring a computer or laptop. We will provide a license for the training.
Every student will receive the book Drone Survey Fundamentals. This is a 200-page book with all the theory and workflows. In addition, each student will receive two hours of free consultancy after the course to help out with projects or advice on data processing.
The 3-day course Drone Survey Fundamentals focusses more on the theory of aerial surveying than the course Expert mapping with Pix4D. The course is packed with both the theoretical knowledge and practical tips gained over decades of aerial surveying.
During this course we will look at Geodesy (geoids, ellipsoids, datums and coordinate systems), Satellite positioning, Photogrammetry, Lidar, Data processing and deliverables.
We can share that knowledge with you and will make sure you do not make those costly beginners mistakes that will ruin your reputation.
As with every course we offer, every student will receive the book Drone Survey Fundamentals. This is a 200-page book with all the theory and workflows. In addition, each student will receive two hours of free consultancy after the course to help with projects or advice on data processing.
Do you or does your organisation need a specific training tailored to suit your requirements? Drone survey school offers training geared towards using a specific drone or looks at the complex geodetic issues in your country.
