We offer a variety of hands-on workshops throughout California on GIS, web mapping, remote sensing, GPS and drone mapping. These workshops are tailored to the interests of ANR staff and their collaborators, and represent a shared effort between IGIS and the UC Berkeley Geospatial Innovation Facility (GIF). Follow-up support is available through our online office hours and online training resources.

Research drones provide an unparalleled ability to create high resolution maps of vegetation cover, including the three-dimensional structure and chemical properties invisible to the naked eye. We use quad-copter drones and multi-spectral cameras to map crop health, surface hydrology, canopy structure, and a host of other applications. In addition to training, we offer drone mapping services to ANR staff and their collaborators. Read more.
