In the last couple of years, the potential of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), also known as drones, for forest ecosystem research has been studied and tested in a multitude of applications. With the widespread use of high-precision sensors and accompanying software in forestry, it is possible to obtain accurate data in a short time that replaces long-term manpower in the field with equal or in some cases, such as windthrow calculation or wildlife counting, greater accuracy.

This workshop will cover the basics of UAS operations and applications with particular attention to the potential to support a host of natural resource management activities, including forest health protection, wildfire suppression, research, recreational impacts, and law enforcement. UAS have a growing track record of being valuable and efficient tools for use in forest management.  Like any other specialized equipment, their effective use is contingent upon proper training - from selecting the right loadout to safely and efficiently operating in the field to post processing and analysis.  This workshop is aimed at individuals seeking to add and/or more effectively employ UAS in their forest management related activities.
