Sign up now for ASPRS workshops at the 2023 Esri User Conference

This July, as we all come together in sunny San Diego for this year’s Esri User Conference (UC), there are hundreds of opportunities to learn, grow, and be inspired—with sessions, workshops, demos, and opportunities to network about all things imagery and remote sensing.

This year, the Imagery team wanted to highlight a unique opportunity with the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS). ASPRS will be at the Esri User Conference this year hosting an informative technical workshop. This hands-on course will take place on Sunday, July 9 and will cover the newly revised standards and guidelines to be aware of and report against, regarding positional accuracy of imagery and elevation data.

Registration to this workshop includes a free in-person pass to the Esri UC 2023. You will also receive a certificate for four Professional Development Hours (PDH) for completing an ASPRS workshop. You’ll find more information about this workshop below.

Applying the 2023 ASPRS Positional Accuracy Standards and Guidelines to Imagery and Elevation Data

In this 4-hour workshop instructed by Dr. Qassim Abdullah, the Vice President and Chief Scientist of Woolpert, Inc. and Chair of the ASPRS Positional Accuracy Standards Working Group, you will learn about the updates made in the 2nd Edition of the Positional Accuracy Standards. Such updates include changes pertaining to checkpoints and ground control points, three-dimensional positional accuracy, changes to lidar data requirements, and addendums on reporting, field survey, and mapping (for photogrammetry, lidar, and UAS). In addition, you will also learn about a free, web-based Accuracy Assessment Tool from Esri that leverages the 2023 ASPRS Positional Accuracy Standards to determine the accuracy of ortho images and generate reports.
