What do you learn in the drone mapping course?
Drone Survey Fundamentals is a short but intensive training course that teaches the methods for performing an accurate drone survey.
In addition, participants learn how they can use the data to gain valuable business insights and avoid costly beginner mistakes.
The course focuses on the basic principles of drone measurement such as photogrammetry, LiDAR, GPS and geomatics. It will culminate in an exam.
The course consists of the following elements:
● The key to accuracy when measuring with a drone.
● Reduction of position errors – PPK and RTK.
● Photogrammetry and LiDAR tutorials.
● Drone survey data – what you collect and how you use it for maximum value.
● Guidelines on when drone investigations will clearly outperform other methods.
● Data processing tips and tricks that help you always conduct accurate drone surveys and save time and money.
Learn from an expert in drone surveying
Pieter Franken from the Drone Survey School – and partner of HELIGUY.com – will conduct the drone surveying course.
He said, “This course covers the theoretical background you need to know as an air surveyor. You save valuable time if you don’t have to make and repeat repetitive mistakes
“It also prevents you from disappointing your customers because you are able to deliver.”
what you promised more consistently. “

Should I bring my own drone with me?
It is not necessary as drones are deployed.
Who is the course aimed at?
This course is designed for people who want to understand the basic principles of drone surveying to enable accurate and consistent drone surveying. The course is aimed at anyone who is already planning or taking aerial photographs with their drone.
What is the best way to prepare for this course?
Students are encouraged to brush up on some very basic math principles before taking the course. The Pythagorean theorem and the calculation in triangles with SIN, COS and TAN are known to be known elements.
Is this course the same as the A2 CofC or GVC?
No. This course is designed to improve surveying skills. To become a CAA-approved drone pilot for the legal operation of a drone, take a separate A2 CofC or GVC course at HELIGUY.com via the online drone training platform Blackbox.
