What Training Events We Offer
All Drone Data Solutions follow this generic workflow for any sensor. Enterprises using drones need more than knowing how to fly. Understanding the capabilities and limitations of the sensor in flight and in different environmental conditions is critical, not only to flight safety but the cost and work efficiency. Flying outside these limits adds confusion for real-time operations and costly labor increases in data correction and processing. Once collected many applications require correction to remove noise, error, and null information. Analysis segments the data to create layers to allow data to be fused with other information and transformed into a decisional aid. Finally, this information must be delivered so that it may be used by the end user. Holding all this together is standards, both user-defined and industry defined.
Drone Operators and Data Analysts both need a good understanding the process and standard. Further Managers, Executives, Contracting and procurement officers, and Information Officers need to develop an appreciation for how this information is collected and processed for two reasons, to know how to utilize this information as business intelligence and understand what drones and data are doing for business.
Drone Operator Training (DOT)
These training events will be in the field data collection.
DOT Events focus on:
- Flight and Mission Planning
- Understanding the Sensor
- Discovering what flight techniques deliver results
- What are the basic products derived from this data
Data Application Training (DATA)
These training events are classroom or webinar in nature.
DATA Events focus on:
- Data Processing and Standards
- Dissemination Architecture and Strategies
Light Detection and Range (LiDAR) Data Training
Intro to LiDAR (DATA –L101)
PREREQUISITE : NONE
AUDIENCE: Drone Operators, Geospatial Analysts or General Consumers (Decision Makers, Producers, and Consumers).
LiDAR High-Resolution Terrain Mapping (DATA –L201)
This course is a follow-on to DATA –L101 introduction course, and is designed to provide students with a deeper understanding of LiDAR processing and analysis techniques. A student will learn how to prepare raw data and condition for variety visualization, poly-mesh, TIN analysis, and produce bare earth digital elevation maps and contours. Students will learn how to do volume and sedimentation measurement. This course will prepare the student for more advanced classification and digital exploitation techniques. 3-day course.
PREREQUISITE : DATA –L101
AUDIENCE : Drone Operators, Geospatial Analysts or General Consumers
LiDAR for Vegetation Classification (DATA –L202)
PREREQUISITE : DATA –L201
AUDIENCE : Drone Operators, Geospatial Analysts or General Consumers (Producers, and Consumers).
Thermal Data Training
Intro to Thermal Operations (DOT-T101)
This hands-on 3-day course will show you the application of thermography from the air and its limitless inspection applications. Topics include Infrared science, sUAS safe operation, applications, cameras for your work focus. Learn how to get the best image from your camera. Apply thermography theory, science, and techniques, including measurement and interpretation of radiometric survey result specific to aerial applications.
AUDIENCE Drone Operators, Geospatial Analysts, Thermographers or General Consumers
Intro to Thermal Analysis (DATA-T101)
Thermography Fundamentals is a 3-day introductory class focusing on the fundamentals of condition monitoring/predictive maintenance for the new thermographer. Collect quality data, accurate temperature readings, and account for measurement effects such as distance and emissivity using infrared cameras. Maximize post-processing software for image analysis, report generation, and video editing.
AUDIENCE: Anyone interested in Thermography
Responder Coordination–Thermal (DOT-T104)
This introductory course 1-day course will show you show you how to use a thermal camera for real-time operations. Topics will include Infrared science, sUAS safe operation, and camera operations. Here this course differs from the introductory course is dealing with thermal crossover and high-intensity sources that may prevent seeing team members. We work with integrating the thermal information into rescue operations. This course is ideal for pre-established teams or organizations.
AUDIENCE: Drone Operators, First Responders, Emergency Action Teams
