Thursday 4th July, Worcester: Remote sensing from small unmanned aerial systems - John Wells - 25th March 2013

‘Remote sensing from small unmanned aerial systems’
1-day workshop at the University of Worcester
Thursday 4th July 2013, 10am – 4.30pm

The use of remotely sensed data collected using small, low altitude unmanned aerial systems or vehicles (UAVs) has seen significant growth in recent years, for a wide range of scientific applications. UAVs offer many benefits including flexibility and rapidity of use, low per-flight costs and the ability to collect ‘hyper-spatial’ data. Within this emerging field there is a need for the exchange of knowledge, theory and practical experiences, with a view to developing best practise and encouraging use in new application areas.

The aim of the workshop is explore the potential of these exciting platforms for research and management through facilitated discussion on data collection, analysis and application in a range of areas.

Guest speakers:
Dr Patrice Carbonneau – Durham University
Dr John Wells –West Lothian Archaeological Trust
Nigel King – Director at QuestUAV Ltd

Further papers are invited. Please submit 200 word abstracts with title, author names and affiliations and preference for oral or poster presentation to uav-conference@worc.ac.uk by Friday 19th April 2013.
