Workshop ContentThis workshop is designed for participants with little to no experience with drone technology, who are interested exploring practical applications of drones for a variety of data collection interests.  The workshop will begin with a lecture on drone technology, regulations, and considerations for flight planning and deploying your drone.  Weather permitting, we will then go outside for a drone demo and some hands-on experience flying a common quad-copter platform. To conclude the workshop, we will discuss a wide variety of potential scientific and management oriented applications for drones, and associated mission specific considerations.
