Best practices for high-precision UAV mapping using Lidar/Camera payloads

Professional grade Lidar systems are currently being used on board unmanned airborne systems for high precision mapping applications. This session is intended for the uncrewed airborne lidar user community including mapping professionals, land surveyors, managers, and business decision makers to understand the underlying concepts of high precision mapping by Lidar from the technical and business perspectives, in the form of theory and practice, using real data sets from around the world.

Fundamentals of Image Analysis in Google Earth Engine

This workshop will provide an interactive exploration of Google Earth Engine (GEE) capabilities with examples of projects demonstrating the use of GEE in education, undergraduate research and outreach, followed by more advanced topics of GEE that includes image processing, widget use and app building using an API based coding environment. Each participant will get at 4 GEE activities for classroom use and several GEE API scripts that the participants can modify for their own use. 

Note: This workshop requires registrants to bring a laptop with Wi-Fi capabilities.

Airborne Topobathy Lidar - Principles and Applications

Airborne laser (or lidar) bathymetry (ALB) is a technique for measuring depths of nearshore coastal waters, lakes, and rivers from a low-altitude aircraft, typically using using a scanning, pulsed laser beam. Based on three decades of operations, ALB has proven to be an accurate, cost-effective, rapid, safe, and flexible method for surveying in shallow water and on coastlines where sonar systems are less efficient and can even be dangerous to operate. This seminar will cover the principles and applications of this technology, including an overview of the history of this technology and an overview of the sensors available today.

Planning for the New National Spatial Reference System and Vertical Datum

The USGS National Map is the Nation’s source for topographic, hydrographic, and cartographic geospatial data. These National datasets may span collection periods of many decades and exist in a variety of different coordinate reference systems. This workshop will focus on planning discussions underway within the USGS National Geospatial Program and anticipated difficulties in transforming existing data holdings to the new reference system and vertical datum.
