This workshop is designed to introduce unmanned aerial systems (UAS) technology with a focus on natural resource applications in forested landscapes. The workshop will be taught by Dan Heins and Andrew Jenks of the University of Minnesota Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis Lab and Department of Forest Resources. We will review UAS technology including capabilities and limitations, regulatory status, operation, data products, and applications for foresters and land managers. Weather permitting, the workshop will include demonstration UAS flights with ample time for observation and Q&A.
