Over this three full day course, we will be introducing and flying a variety of data acquisition types followed by discussion and instruction on how to process the acquired data in Pix4D. We'll also discuss other processing software options, including Drone Deploy, and when each is most effective. The goal is to map and build models of this training's location.
We'll get started Friday morning with an introduction to the plan for the weekend and short lecture, and then a short round table designed to allow the instructors and participants to get to know each other. These classes are always more fun, and more beneficial, when we know a bit about one another and can learn from each other. The instructor(s) will be available to answer questions and ensure we are all properly set up and equipped for the weekend.
On Saturday we will spend the entire day in the field where we will map the property. The goal is to introduce a variety of data acquisition techniques and utilize the ones best suited for this property type. Throughout the day as we fly the instructor(s) will be working with students individually to help them refine and improve their acquisition techniques.
On Sunday we will spend the entire day in the classroom covering how to use Pix4D Mapper to produce our maps and models. We will be going into great detail about all of the various processing settings to help produce the best maps and models possible.
A significant part of Sunday will be spent covering the various output files produced from the various processing platforms and how these files relate to a deliverable product for our clients. We understand that the greatest models and maps are not very valuable if they can't be translated into a form and format that our clients can use and understand.
OPTIONAL ADD ON - Understanding and Creating the Deliverable's Your Clients Need:
This afternoon session will be held Sunday afternoon.
Class Location: DoubleTree by Hilton San Diego Del Mar
OPTIONAL ADD ON - FLIGHT MASTERY:
If you're looking to enhance your flight skills, we are hosting an additional day of training, our Flight Mastery Course, on Thursday, December 12th. The flight mastery course is a training based on our obstacle course built from 12 exercises to build confidence in students ability to fly and make educated decisions in flight.
This course will focus on individual flight movements that aid in the development of a firm foundation of flight knowledge and experience. Participants will work with experienced pilots who will guide them through the process of improving their flight skills and understanding of UAV operations.
