Everyone is welcome at the Ag Drone School, from teenagers to retired agronomists, from government environmental agency staff to agtech entrepreneurs. You don’t even need to have a drone — only about ¼ of attendees already have an RPAS, many are just taking the course because they want to learn about it before purchasing anything.
After completion of day two, you will have your legal drone license (If you choose to take the Online Transport Canada test), drone flying experience, and additional information on drone use in the Agriculture industry.
During the course, Land View will talk about the uses & limitations of this technology for agriculture and exactly how you would go about using the data. We’ll discuss what is possible in vegetative remote sensing now and demonstrate exactly what sensors & software you would use on your farm.
Land View’s Ag Drone School deals with every aspect of productive, safe, and legal use of remotely piloted aerial systems by farmers & agronomists. Topics covered include:
- Introduction to Remote Sensing of Vegetation
- NDVI and other vegetative indexes
- Data accuracy: sensor types and calibration
- Future of crop imaging … hyperspec, thermal, machine learning
- From fly to apply: software workflows
- Use cases: the many uses of drones on farms
- Knowledge Requirements for Small Basic Operations:
- Air law, air traffic rules and procedures
- RPAS airframes, power plants, propulsion and systems
- Human factors
- Flight operations
- Theory of flight
