Technical Session. Considering a UAV - Now What
AUTHORS: Bill Timmins, GIS Services; Laura Ramage, LizardTech

ABSTRACT: This presentation will discuss variety of UAVs and sensors as well as basics of site planning for data collection and access. Once collected the ability to share imagery by compressing it at a variety of ratios for ease will be addressed. This presentation will briefly review these concerns leaving time at the end for discussion and questions.

Technical Session. Supercharging Your GIS with Unmanned Aerial Systems
AUTHORS: Jarlath O'Neil-Dunne, Tayler Engel, Noah Ahles, Sean MacFaden* - University of Vermont Spatial Analysis Laboratory

ABSTRACT: Up-to-date imagery, high-resolution terrain models, precision base maps - this presentation will highlight the many ways in which Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) can supercharge your GIS with better, more accurate, and current data. Drawing from a broad range of natural resources, transportation, and urban planning case studies, we will show how UAS platforms provide near-immediate, GIS-ready products for mapping and analysis, and we will also discuss the field and data-processing workflows needed to capture high-quality, actionable information.

Technical Session. Commercial UAS Applications and Regulatory Update
AUTHORS: Jamie Gaynor, Terracon (Moderator); Jason Wise, Terracon; Jon Budreski, AirShark; Chris Poreda, Poreda Aviation Law; Tayler Engel, UVM Spatial Analysis Laboratory

ABSTRACT: Rapid advancements in drone technology enable us to collect accurate and timely data for nearly limitless commercial applications in the engineering and consulting industry. New rules, which took effect in late August, provide the necessary framework to safely integrate this technology into the national airspace. Until now commercial use has been authorized on a case-by-case basis under a Section 333 Exemption. This program will examine the regulatory requirements of Part 107 and Section 333, and discuss innovative applications of UAS technology in the geospatial industry.
