GIS-Pro 2020 has ended
Welcome to URISA’s GIS-Pro 2020 — A special virtual edition for challenging times.
We invite you to review the agenda, block your calendar, and join us virtually for URISA’s 58th Annual Conference. Our community has always been resilient and eager to help each other through a crisis. Be engaged. Ask questions. Explore solutions. Make the most of this opportunity. Be safe.

Workshops will be presented ’live’ on September 23 & 24 and after GIS-Pro on October 6 & 7. Attendance at one workshop is included with full registration.

Note that all times in this online agenda are presented in CENTRAL Time (URISA’s office is in Chicago).

You must be registered to access the online platform (which is not this Sched agenda).

Eos Positioning Systems, Inc Lunch & Learn: GNSS/GPS and Drones: Everything you want to know about High-Accuracy Mobile GIS

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Tools for collecting high-accuracy data for GIS have evolved significantly in the past several years. Specifically, high-accuracy GNSS has changed dramatically in the past 3 years with the addition of Galileo (European) and BeiDou (Chinese) navigation satellite constellations. Furthermore, small mapping drones have become much more reliable, safe, and efficient in collecting high-accuracy imagery.

The advancement in both technologies now allows GIS technicians, and even interns, the ability to reliably collect “survey-grade” horizontal and elevation data at a lower cost than ever before in history. Join me for a lively discussion on the latest technology trends in high-accuracy GNSS and drones.
