Dr. Mohamed Mostafa, Director of mdSolutions at Microdrones will present this Wednesday at Intergeo 2017. His presentation will provide practical application of his extensive research and field work. Geospatial professionals interested in using drones for surveying and mapping work should plan to attend.
Titled Professional Grade Lidar/Imaging Systems for Unmanned Airborne Mapping Applications, the presentation will help attendees to:
- Clearly define a professional grade mapping system that integrates a sensor assembly, focusing on engineering the components to provide the best possible mapping quality.
- Define a workflow that results in an industry standard mapping product, along with its associated industry accepted statistical measures.
- Assess the geometric quality of the final mapping product.
The presentation will take place at 2PM CET at Intergeo, in the IAS INNOVATIONS FORUM, HALL 6.1
In addition to this presentation, Dr. Mostafa will also participate as a panelist in a Podium discussion titled, How Drones Change Industries, which will occur at 11:30 CET in the IAS INNOVATIONS FORUM, HALL 6.1
