Full Description

Drone Surveying Training Course

Learn how to perform drone surveys and analyse the results.

What Will I Learn?

This drone land surveying and aerial mapping course will teach you how to perform an accurate drone survey and how to use the data you collect to generate valuable insights for your own organisation or your clients.

  • The key to accuracy when surveying with a drone.
  • Reducing positional errors.
  • Photogrammetry and LiDAR mapping tutorials. 
  • Drone survey data - what you'll collect and how to use it for maximum value.
  • Guidance on when drone surveys will significantly outperform other methodologies.
  • Data processing tips and tricks that give you consistently accurate drone surveys saving you both time and money.

Both theoretical and practical aspects of drone surveying and mapping are covered in the training course to help you get the very most out of your aerial operations.

What this course is not designed to do is to teach you to fly a drone - for a base level of training in that respect - you can check out our A2 CofC and GVC Drone Training Courses.

Who is this Drone Surveying Training Suitable for?

Simply put - anyone who is already, or has plans to, perform aerial surveys with their drone.

This course will have some amazing advice for all drone pilots, of any skill level.

It's a 3-day course, so it is intensive - and is designed to let you leave the course with the skills, knowledge and confidence to perform accurate drone surveys for your own organisation or on behalf of your clients.

Who Teaches the Course?

heliguy™ has two in-house GIS specialists - Ben Sangster and Richard Dunlop.

They graduated with BSc honours in GIS from Newcastle University - the UK's number one GIS institute.

Ben is a qualified surveyor with previous land survey experience. Richard worked at the Severn Partnership, conducting surveying projects at London's Charing Cross Station and RAF Lossiemouth.

They were guest speakers at Digital Construction Week, in London, promoting GIS drone workflows for the AEC industry in conjunction with Esri UK, as part of an ongoing partnership.

Ben and Richard have developed and delivered the Aerial Surveying Fundamentals Training Course: An industry-specific on-site closed course to build drone pilot expertise in surveying. It has been delivered to Phillips 66, AB Ports, and Balfour Beatty Vinci to support drones on the HS2 scheme.

The GIS team has also created an online Geospatial Workflow Course, focusing on the M300 RTK, L1 and P1. The content includes best practises, data capture, processing and modelling.

What does the Course Include?

This course includes everything you need to know to get started with aerial surveying:

  • Drone surveying basics and theory
  • Drone and sensor training
  • Post-processing aerial surveying data
  • In-Person Training Course
  • In-depth Support from the™ training team across the entire course.

Accommodation for the period of the training course is not included.
