Intro to Drones and LiDAR for Mapping

Are you interested in learning how Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs, or drones) can be used as a geospatial data collection platform? Want to learn more about how terrestrial LiDAR scanning is performed? Find out during this hands-on workshop session, where you will:

• Process pictures from a UAV into 3D point clouds and aerial photos
• Try out a LiDAR scanner and process the point cloud data.
• Learn about the regulatory framework regarding drone usage for research and instruction
• Find out what resources and equipment are available from CCGT to support Clemson researchers and instructors.

This workshop is free for all Clemson students, staff, and faculty.
This is the eleventh and final workshop session in our GIS Fundamentals Workshop Series. Learn more at
