Overview

Drone technology is giving us new ways to collect overhead imagery of our communities. The data collected by drones has uses that go far beyond compelling images and stunning videos. This session will dive into drone technology, drawing from dozens of case studies in which drones have been used throughout New England for community planning and emergency management. You will learn about the various types of drone platforms, the rules and regulations surrounding drones, how drone imagery can be processed to create geospatial data, and what should be taken into account before you contract for drone services. The University of Vermont Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Team will conduct a live demonstration (weather permitting) with several of their drones.
