Tickets for this workshop must be claimed in advance.

The use of drones, officially referred to as Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems (RPAS), has been forecasted to play a key role in the digitalization and further optimization of a variety of geomatics applications such as in resource aggregates management, landfill management, civil engineering (3D reality capture, virtual surveying), and precision agriculture. To help realize this forecast it is important for stakeholders (RPAS service providers, RPAS data users, etc.) to be knowledgeable about industry accepted geomatics quality and accuracy standards. This is to ensure that stakeholders have mutual understanding and expectations of the specific applications where RPAS data products are suitable for and to be aware of any legal considerations. This workshop will bring together experts in geomatics standards and other stakeholders in the RPAS industry to provide a forum for discussing existing geomatics standards and their adoption in the provision of RPAS-derived geomatics data products.
