Simple Ways to Introduce UAS Data in Your GIS Classes
Track: Teaching and Research
Authors: Wing Cheung
Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are poised to become significant sources of geospatial data in the near future. To prepare students for the integration of UAS and geospatial technology, this presentation will explore resources and highlight exercise ideas to help educators introduce UAS data in their GIS courses. For educators interested in operating UAS in their classes, a brief overview of regulations governing the legal operation of UAS for educational purpose will also be provided.
