Headwall In-Person UAV Remote-Sensing Training Workshop

On-Site Workshop | Wednesday, Oct 20, 2021 to Thursday, Oct 21, 2021

Thumbnail_HW-RS-Workshop_Oct21pngThis was an on-site workshop with an emphasis on but not exclusively about environmental-monitoring applications for remote-sensing. It appeals to users, enthusiasts, and experts interested in learning about performing hyperspectral surveys with lightweight UAVs. It was held at Headwall's headquarters and training facility in Bolton, Massachusetts. We adhered to local health and safety protocols, so the total number of attendees was limited. The workshop was limited to vaccinated participants only, and attendees brought a negative PCR COVID-19 test taken within the last 72 hours prior to the workshop. UPDATE: we successfully hosted the workshop at our capacity. For those who could not attend, please sign in to see the recorded talks on Day Two.
