Registration is Now Open for UAS Mapping 2015 Reno

Bethesda, Md, May 28, 2015—The second annual technical UAS symposium sponsored by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) is approaching (September 29-30)!   The current fee for ASPRS members to attend the event is only $350. The current fee for non-ASPRS members to attend the event is only $400.  Student rates are available.  Exhibitors are provided an exhibit booth and benefits which include two complimentary registrations for only $650.  All rates will go up in price on August 15, 2015, so register now!

This year’s program includes a pre-symposium, ASPRS-sponsored, one-day UAS Data Processing Workshop on Monday, September 28.   The fee for the workshop is only $95 for ASPRS members, $125 for non-members, and $45 for students.  The fee will include a complimentary lunch.  This workshop will be hands-on with participants bringing their laptops which will be loaded with processing software and UAS test data.  This is an opportunity to receive hands-on instruction from national leaders in photogrammetry.

The second annual UAS technical symposium will showcase UAS in operation including flights of UAS mapping calibration test courses for the validation and accuracy assessment of UAS sensor payloads.  General technical sessions will focus on the mapping and remote sensing aspects of unmanned acquisitions with the goal to provide practical information on UAS flight planning, acquisition, data processing and map production.  National and international speakers will address current-day and developing UAS applications.  Academia and research institutions will inform on existing educational and training opportunities.  Survey, mapping, and engineering firms will be on-hand to share their experience and further their UAS implementation strategies.  Government agencies will share information on the development of national and international mapping programs.  Last year’s event included over 560 participants and 60 exhibitors; this year our numbers are expected to grow.   A high-quality technical program is already lined-up with exciting and informative speakers.  The speaker list and preliminary program will be released soon – please stay tuned.
