Drone mapping workshop launched

The first ever workshop for Pix4D software users in the UK will take place on 29 – 30 November.

Its operator Coptrz, the drone retailer to the construction sector and drone software company, has confirmed the dates.

The Mercure Hotel in Hayes will be the venue as the group of Pix4D trainees - that are expected to attend from countries across Europe - make history as the first group to take a professionally run course dedicated to the drone software that offers mapping and modelling solutions.

It was revealed by the UK's aviation regulator that an 80% increase in the issuing of drone permits has been tracked over the past few years. One of the industries to benefit from advances in drone mapping software is construction, with sites now being easily documented and measured from an aerial perspective. Ongoing construction analysis and virtual inspections have been made possible by tools such as Pix4D.

Learning how to get the most from the software will take up a large percentage of the trainees' time, and on completion of the course, they will pick up Pix4D accreditation.

Attendees can expect a lively and passionate delivery style from the speakers, who are handpicked experts, several of whom have worked directly with Pix4D in a professional capacity. All participants can look forward to an expansion of their Pix4D skill set, practicalities specific to the construction sector, as well as some insights into the wider drone industry. Coptrz intends that the true capabilities of Pix4D, recognised as the leading photogrammetry software, will be revealed on the innovative course.

Starting from flight planning and progressing to project evaluation, the course will take an organised approach moulded by best practices, and a demonstration of Pix4Dmapper will also be included. Construction model development by hand, drone and plane is covered, along with an advanced level of georeferenced map creation, as part of the tuition.

It all comes together to provide remarkable value for a two day experience which also looks at 3D mapping's future, and the state of the art technology that could shape it.

Lunch will be provided on both days, with tea and coffee available for the duration. Classes start at 9am and run until 5.30pm.

Coptrz founder Steve Coulson said: "Coptrz are the UK Pix4D training partners and we are very excited to announce the first ever Pix4D workshop in the UK for the world leaders in drone mapping software."
