This session seeks to explore some of the current and future applications of UAV technology to the terrestrial, coastal and marine interface.
This will include coverage of for example: developing UAV technologies, soft-copy photogrammetry, surveying, ground-control, mapping, and 3D surface generation and 3D modelling.
Novel applications of UAVs and technical solutions for monitoring, mapping and modelling are welcome, particularly where they provide insight into the practical use of low-cost UAV solutions.
An international perspective is expected.
