    Industry professionals are turning to drones with benefits for monitoring landfills such as the LA Co Sanitation to generating cm detail imagery and surface accuracy basemaps of a brownfield or future park.  Drones (or UAVs/UAS) offer quick, easy and cost-effective insights, on demand that we import into GIS or CAD deliverables.

    The short GIS130 course provides the 'students' with an introduction and basic overview to Drone Operations and Federal Aviation Regulation (FAA) Part 107 License (a requirement for commercial use of drone services). The learning outcomes are to perform the workflow of generating orthomosaic layers for purposes of surface modeling, volumetrics and image analysis. The GIS 120 provides Introduction to GIS and followup in the fall with additional courses to complete a GIS Certificate within 2 additional semesters.  Both courses have field trips to the Esri UC and field stations.  Classes start June 17th.  FMI visit
