senseFly to Host Free ‘Drone Surveying 101’ Webinar

Cheseaux-Lausanne, Switzerland, 9 November 2016 – senseFly, the world’s first choice producer of professional mapping drones, will host a free educational webinar on the applications of drones for professional surveying and mapping. Two experienced commercial operators will discuss how they deployed drones in the mapping phases of major infrastructure development projects.

The one-hour webinar, “Drone Surveying 101 – Experienced Operators Discuss Cost, Achievable Accuracy, Workflows and More,” will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 10 a.m. EST/16:00 CET. There is no charge to attend, but attendees must register in advance here.

“Thousands of geospatial professionals have already turned to drone technology,” said senseFly’s CEO, Jean-Christophe Zufferey. “However, this webinar is designed for the rest. Our goal is to help non-drone users get a real feel for how this technology works, at a business level, from two experienced professionals who use drones day in, day out. These users will talk participants through every aspect of their unmanned experience—from the pros and cons of drone adoption to hot topics such as achievable accuracy and workflow integration.”

Marc A. Cañas, GISP/MBA, Vice President of National Freight Rail at Jacobs Engineering, will offer insights into how he surveyed 30 miles of the California High-Speed Rail project with a senseFly eBee RTK drone – faster and more cost-effectively than traditional methods.

Aidan O Connor, Managing Director of ASM Ireland, has used drones for survey applications in numerous quarry mapping and large earthwork projects, and he will discuss the efficiency and safety benefits compared to terrestrial methods. Aidan will also describe which types of drones (fixed-wing or multi-copter) are best suited to various remote site survey projects.

In addition, webinar attendees will learn:

  • How drones can expand their commercial business offering
  • What it takes to fit drones into an existing geospatial workflow
  • How regulations can affect professional drone use
  • What risks are involved in implementing drone technology

Additionally, senseFly’s team will provide a glimpse into the company’s very newest drone technology: the recently released eBee Plus. This is the first turnkey drone system designed specifically for professional photogrammetric mapping.
