  • Fly safely

  • Use geotagged images to produce ortho-rectified 2D photographic surveys

  • Use geotagged images to produce 3D point clouds

  • Render 3D point clouds to produce 3D images of topographical surveys

Included in the training will be a practical hands-on flying session(s). The time spent on this activity will depend on how much time is spent on the theory elements, but as a minimum every delegate will have the opportunity to fly a DJI drone under supervision.
