[Editor’s Note: InterDrone will take place in Las Vegas, from September 7th until 9th.]
MELVILLE, N.Y., July 12, 2016 — BZ Media LLC today announced that Pix4D would be bringing a half-day technical workshop to the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas on September 6 to help educate and train professionals in the use of drones for mapping and surveying. InterDrone is being held September 7-9 and expects more than 4,000 commercial drone experts to attend.
With the formalization of the most important regulation for the US drone industry and an increasing number of professionals worldwide using drones and photogrammetry in their business, there is a greater need for training on how to maximize drone investment. The Pix4D workshop will explain to attendees how the technology works, and what is the optimal workflow for using Pix4Dmapper to map, measure, inspect, and visualize.
“Demand in Pix4D’s technology is growing and we chose to have our first new users’ workshop at InterDrone, one of the largest of the commercial drone shows,” said Antoine Martin, North America Business Manager at Pix4D.
The half-day session runs from 1:00pm-5:30pm and costs $295, which includes a $100-value pass to the Exhibit Hall, Film Festival and keynotes at InterDrone. The workshop can also include a 30-day license of Pix4Dmapper Pro (valued at $350), for a total cost of workshop seat with license for $445.
Some of the topics expected to be covered include:
- Modern photogrammetry: from 2D to 3D
- Image acquisition: best practices
- Georeferencing and project accuracy
- File outputs
- Processing demonstration and basic processing options
