Drone Technology and Landscape Architecture: Strategies for Integrated Workflows and Climate Action - 1.5 PDH (LA CES/non-HSW)
Recorded On: 10/27/2023
We invite you to learn how drone technologies and software applications augment landscape architecture's ability to fight climate change. Accurate site data and realistic visualizations are now more accessible to the profession's practice and education. This session proposes new drone data workflows for analysis, research, and planning.
- Understand regulatory requirements, weather conditions, and drone operations.
- Learn methods for reliable image data collection, processing, and output of high-quality mapping, digital surface models, heat zones, and 3D site models.
- Learn how to implement drone data into action plan workflows.
- Understand how drone mapping and visualization can be used for climate change assessments, action plan solutions, and progress tracking.
