UAS Master & TBC Scanning Module - 1 Day Workshop

Instructor(s): Dustin Hoaglin – Denver, CO / Bob Green - Albuquerque, NM

Workshop Purpose

Improve employee aptitude regarding Trimble Terrestrial Scanning and Processing to include the Trimble TX series 3d Scanners and processing that data within Trimble RealWorks.  

Workshop Objectives

In this workshop, you will process data in UASmaster from project setup to exporting digital terrain models and orthomosaics. Create powerful deliverables from images collected with UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) aerial mapping and surveying systems. UASMaster combines ease of use with the full power of a photogrammetric workstation. This UASMaster workshop introduces users to UAS theory and methods. Modern computer-vision algorithms combined with proven state-of-the-art photogrammetric techniques produce accurate results automatically, with minimal manual interaction. Vectors will guide you through the workflow integrates interactive automated editing capabilities for geo-referencing, point clouds data creation with break-lines, classification, filtering, and many more.

UASmaster software is open for processing photos from any fixed-wing, helicopter-type or other UAS hardware. The technology is optimized for UAS with GPS support (recommended accuracy ±10 m)

Please note that the basic training workshop uses provided a UASMaster training data set only.
