Please join us on Monday, October 1st for our workshop at Commercial UAV Expo 2018 in Las Vegas! GeoCue Group Inc. and its subsidiary, AirGon LLC, will repeat last year’s highly successful colloquium on high accuracy mapping with low cost drones. This seminar will walk the user through the entire process of preparing for, collecting and processing data using DJI drones in conjunction with AirGon’s highly successful direct geopositioning system, Loki.
We are excited to announce our two guest speakers for the seminar:
