Event description

Description

The use of spatial data and drones is rapidly increasing across academia and research resulting in the generation of high-resolution geospatial information. The deployment of these advanced technologies not only provide greater opportunities and enable innovation in research but also present equal challenges in data management, technological & computing capabilities, sensitivities and other ethical issues.

The Australian National Data Service, a federally funded NCRIS facility, is facilitating a workshop on drones & big spatial data which aim to bring together researchers and data specialists from various disciplines and agencies to showcase their expertise, knowledge and information exchange. This workshop consists of presentations, multiple hands-on tutorials, and also provides the participants with an opportunity for networking with leading spatial data experts.

Cost: There is no cost to register for this event but registration is essential for catering if you are attending the full day program.

Understanding UAV user needs: The CRC for Spatial Information (CRCSI) with its partners has recognised the many benefits of assisting users to create technical requirements for data acquisition that suit their UAV application. For organisations procuring UAV acquired data there is a risk that the supplied data is not fit-for-purpose. The CRCSI is developing a standard workflow which will help users set specifications for an acquisition and check the quality of the supplied UAV products to ensure the products meet user requirements.

To achieve this, CRCSI needs your input to better understand the user requirements for UAV data.Part of this analysis includes an online questionnaire which can be accessed at QA4UAV.

Please complete the questionnaire and the user feedback can be discussed at the forum.

Note:

  • Registrations may be limited to 5 places per each institution to accommodate others.
  • Attendees are requested to bring their own laptops/devices for the practicals
