sUAS Mapping - Are you in Control? 

Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) are gaining momentum for use in aerial data acquisition for topographic mapping.  If you are using sUAS as a tool to assist your team with generating topographic mapping, developing a well-orchestrated strategy for integrating sUAS operations into your workflow is critical. This session will examine the workflow associated with generating the topographic mapping associated with a 170-acre, 1.2 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) natural gas processing plant. sUAS was used to create topographic mapping for use in plant layout, grading plans, cut and fill calculations for earthwork balance, permitting, and to plan for future plant expansions. sUAS flight planning, ground control requirements, post-processing options, and recommended QA/QC procedures to assure an accurate deliverable will be discussed. Session will also provide an overview of various sUAS platforms, sensors, and applications.
