Clearly drones are ideal for topographic measurement, from movement monitoring, change detection, seepage detection, volumetric measurement and more. However, determining the right sensors and tools for managing the data is not always clear-cut. Lidar, photogrammetry, multispectral, processing/extracting the data, and the appropriate deliverables will all be covered.

Tuesday, October 2
