Mapping with Drones: The Hidden Truths and Beyond

Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017
Noon-1 p.m.
Eau Claire Golf & Country Club
828 Clubview Lane, Altoona

Drones are valuable tools for gathering aerial imagery for mapping and analysis — if used properly. In this joint presentation, Dr. Joseph Hupy, UW-Eau Claire associate professor of geography, and Peter Menet, president and CEO of Milwaukee-based Menet Aero, will share their experiences with using drone technology from an industry and research perspective. Menet, a former Black Hawk helicopter pilot in the Wisconsin National Guard, will discuss why knowledge in aviation is a must when using drones for commercial purposes. Hupy will describe how to engage in a variety of value-added data analyses in a variety of applications.
