Hyperspectral Remote-Sensing Workshop at Scripps-UCSD

Workshop | Tue, Oct 4, 2022 to Wed, Oct 5, 2022


Come to a free in-person Headwall workshop at Scripps-UCSD on Hyperspectral Remote Sensing using UAVs. There will be an outdoor demo flight at the shore and presentations at the conference center on remote-sensing mission planning, as well as on applications such as environmental monitoring, precision agriculture, mining, and geology, as well as using machine learning for data analysis.

Location: Scripps Institution of Oceanography - UCSD in La Jolla, CA -- Day 1 at Martin Johnson House, 8840 Biological Grade, La Jolla, CA 92037 and Day 2 at Hubbs Hall 4500, La Jolla, California 92093

A limited number of parking passes are available to the first registrants. More details will follow.
