UAV Focus Event 30 July – Free for AGI Members

800px-Parrot_Bebop_Drone_(Blue)Our next AGI Scotland Focus event is on 30 July at Edinburgh College of Art, starting at 3.30pm.

The rise of drones in both commercial and hobby use has increased exponentially over the last few years providing GI professionals and non-professionals with a bewildering range of solutions to choose from, both in terms of hardware and software and importantly, ethically and legally. The presentations at the event will showcase case studies of real world drone use in commercial and academic sectors highlighting the opportunities, issues and future directions that the use of drones in the GI sector may raise. The seminar will be followed by informal drinks (‘geobeers’) to encourage further networking and discussion.

Speakers include:

  • Craig Jump, Sky View Video
  • Paul Georgie, GeoGeo
  • Alasdair Mac Arthur, University of Edinburgh, Geosciences
  • Paddy Davies, Horizon AP
  • Pauline Miller, James Hutton Institute

There will also be an opportunity to look at some drones and also 3D printing in the ECA Maker Lab.

Focus events are short session to encourage debate on a specific issue that’s of interest to members  – and designed to fit in with those who find it more difficult to get out of the office. But they are also an opportunity for a wider audience – so please encourage any contacts you know who might be interested to come along. Numbers are limited – booking is free for AGI Members and £12 for non-members (all funds support the work of the AGI).
