GIS 4750 - UAVs and GIS
The purpose of this course is to introduce GIS students to the emerging world of using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) in the GIS workplace for data collection, reconnaissance and research. UAVs are in the news every day highlighting their use in a military context. Soon the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will release new rules and regulations governing the use of UAVs in the civilian sector. This course will prepare students to be conversant in the world of UAVs, basic aviation, safety, flying, mission planning, and general data gathering techniques for use in GIS.
