The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) will be hosting a pre-conference UAS Technical Symposium at the Commercial UAV Expo in Las Vegas, NV. During this full-day symposium, eight (8) presentations will be given by ASPRS members and practicing service providers. Each topic will build on the previous, giving the attendee a comprehensive understanding of UAS mapping in accordance with current geospatial accuracy standards.
The symposium will conclude with a presentation on the new ASPRS UAS Mapping certifications. More information can be found at https://www.asprs.org/Certification-Program.html. For those interested in becoming an ASPRS UAS Certified Professional, Technologist, or Intern, all three examinations will be proctored at the conference venue on October 25. To qualify to take an exam on-site, the appropriate Application for Certification and applicable fees must be received by ASPRS no
