Drones For Land Trust Monitoring And Management: Online

March 1 @ 8:00 am - March 31 @ 11:30 pm

Executive Education Course

Unmanned aerial systems (UAS, also known as drones) are game-changing tools used for on-demand aerial surveys and mapping. For a land trust, UAS can offer significant benefits in survey efficiency, economy, frequency, and quality, but knowing when and how to utilize the technology can be challenging. There are many types of aircraft, support equipment, and software available, making informed adoption of these tools essential.

The Duke University Marine Robotics and Remote Sensing Lab is offering a new, web-based course to help land trusts determine if and how UAS can be applied to their holdings. Duke’s research group, based at the Duke Marine Lab in Beaufort, NC, is a leader in the use of UAS for conservation and management, with over 1300 hours of flight time from surveys conducted across a variety of tropical, temperate and polar environments.
