Training: Introduction in remote sensing with drones
Courses on the introduction to remote sensing with drones and data processing
Basic questions will be answered:
- How and where can drones be used instead of traditional surveying methods and what are the advantages?
- How can I reduce costs and increase productivity?
- What do I need to look out for?
- How are aerial photographs taken and evaluated?
- How do I take pictures with a drone to get an elevation model?
- Which settings are advantageous?
- Which software do I need and how do I have to use it?
- What steps do I have to take to create a DTM from a DEM?
