Esri Joins ASPRS UAS Mapping Symposium as Keynote Speaker and Exhibitor ― Sharing How Drones are Changing the Face of Remote Sensing

The annual UAS Mapping Symposium is one of the nation’s leading conferences on drones, bringing together geospatial experts from across the country. The symposium is organized by the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, the premier imaging and geospatial information society.
As the world’s leading provider of GIS technology worldwide, my Esri colleagues and I are pleased to join ASPRS for this special opportunity to educate and inspire UAS industry professionals. My keynote session, “The Illusion of Simplicity: The Case for Making Drones Easy to Use”, will explore gaining the geospatial advantage by solving application-specific problems using imagery-derived information from UAS systems. I will share recent examples illustrating several use cases, along with observations on near-term trends related to drone use within GIS systems.
My Esri colleagues will be providing several hands-on workshops showcasing our Drone2Map technology.  In these workshops, attendees can get up close and personal with Esri technology built for professional mapping applications and user-friendly tools that drive better insight and decision-making with intelligent remote sensing.
Esri’s latest enterprise GIS technology streamlines the creation of professional imagery products from drone-captured still imagery for visualization and analysis in ArcGIS. Users can create stunning orthomosaics, 3-D meshes, and more, in ArcGIS from drone-captured still imagery ― in just minutes.
Esri workshops include:
Tuesday, September 13, 2016
Drones & imagery in the ArcGIS platform (11:20 am – 11:40 am)
Realizing the value of 3D drone imagery with ArcGIS (4:40 pm – 5:00 pm)
The third annual ASPRS UAS Mapping Symposium will be held at the Palm Springs Convention Center from September 12 – 14, 2016.
