CALL US 1.858.350.4324

WHAT TO EXPECT

This 3-day course was specifically designed for drone pilots looking to expand their business capabilities, companies which are looking to integrate this emergent technology into their traditional workflow, and business executives needing drone-based LiDAR technical training. This course will expose the student to several GIS systems, their data, and what works best in different application requirements. We highly recommend this course if your company is creating or using LiDAR 3-D point cloud products

  • LiDAR theory and different sensor performance characteristics/capabilities.
  • Different Geospatial accuracy performances/standards and specific GIS product requirements.
  • Drone-based LiDAR mission planning and collection strategies.
  • Point cloud optimization – our step by step planning guide to weigh maximum area coverage with the required level of high fidelity data sets.
  • Leveraging Drone automation and what is required for LiDAR vs. photogrammetry. How to do both in the same field operation.
  • Full field work flow:
    • Base setup to flight collection in different environmental/working conditions
    • Processing LiDAR data in the field
    • Verifying data capture quality
  • Comparative Software Workflow to include Datum/survey plane selection, inertial coupling, DGPS Geo-correction, LiDAR compiling, and control point accuracy controls.
  • Data Processing from raw point cloud creative to 3D Digital Surface models to basic data classifications

3 Days

Our most complete hands on course

Sensor Comparison

We start with an in-office presentation of the equipment, workflow, and how the selected LiDAR solution can be used for your business.

Accuracy Standards

We head out to a safe, pre-agreed upon flying area to demonstrate field set up, flight workflows, and in-the-field LiDAR QC processing.

Field Operations

Back in your office, our experts will present calibrated HD LiDAR products, ROI, and consultation on your applications.

Project Planning

Back in your office, our experts will present calibrated HD LiDAR products, ROI, and consultation on your applications.

Data Products

Back in your office, our experts will present calibrated HD LiDAR products, ROI, and consultation on your applications.

Features

See Several Systems Side by Side

This is a 3 day course designed to introduce you to LiDAR and see what different manufactures's systems offer your business..

GeoSpatial Data Processing

LiDAR manufacturers will show you their equipment but stop short on demonstrating what you can do with the data.  This course we spend a day going beyond point clouds to discover downstream products, data formats, and data standards that let you get more done faster.

Course Discount

Deduct the base cost of a standard LiDAR demonstration from your purchase or rental.  If you complete your purchase or rent from use within 90 days we will decut the base price of demonstration off the cost.

Requirements

What We Bring

Instructors

Drone Flight Instructor

Our fully certified drone pilots have flown commercial drones and military helicopters over 10 years and conducting precision data collection.  Learn how to properly collect lidar, fly safe, and best flight practices from real experts.

Remote Sensing Geospatial Expert

We will try to send analysts that match your industry.  Our experts have been developing workflows for the government but go around the world at a national level teaching professionals how to use these technologies to change.

Equipment

Hardware

  • We bring one to two drone lidar systems with all the equipment an company will bring to the field.

Software

  • We present all the software to plan, fly, collect, compile, check accuracy, view, and post process.

Data

  • Data tells the real story.  We have dozens of point clouds.  You can see what works and what doesn't.

What We Need From the Host

Presentation Space

Half of the course is classroom presentations of the technology, workflow, and data products.

A presentation space adequate for the number of people attending with:

  • Presentation Table for a 3-foot diameter drone
  • HDMI UHD TV
  • A power source for laptops and drones

Safe Flying Area

Flight Demonstrations require safe flight area.  This area should include:

  1. Features you want captured. (Forrest, power lines, etc)
  2. Outside of Controlled Airspace.
  3. Property Owner Approval.
  4. Sparsely populated area.
  5. The optimum area (10 - 40 acres or 1 mile of river, etc)

Other Important Information

Class size: While we do not have a maximum audience size, the more attendees the less experience our customers tend to receive. We recommend eight to one student to instructor ratio.

 We suggest limiting the demonstration to company decision-makers and technical experts, who would gain the most from a first-hand experience prior to purchasing our services.

Hours: Plan for a full 8 hour training day with a 1-hour lunch break. Typical hours of instruction are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. unless coordinated in advance.

Pricing

Two Simple Options

Pick the option based upon your company's needs.

Option A

Come to Modus

We have several sites in the US to chose.

This allows you to get away from your office and focus on what these systems can do for your business.

Ask our experts about our training sites.

Option B

We Come to You

Can't afford the downtime?

That is OK.  Let our mobile training team come to you.

Perfect if you have a larger staff or need to have several decision makers see the technology.
