FREE GITA Webinar: Robots and Remote Sensing

When: Tuesday, May 5, 2020
Time: 1PM - 2PM EST  
Speaker: Jason Braverman, SkyX

Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) are driving a remote sensing revolution with the highest-quality optical data available today. With this data, GIS teams are visualizing assets and operations on a massive geospatial scale, enabling management teams to make intelligent and informed decisions. Automation is the key to driving excellence in your monitoring program. Get the visual data that unlocks a new perspective, while streamlining the process around sourcing, analyzing, and refining into its most actionable points.

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • How different UAS builds are enhancing visual insights across industries.
  • Why a high-level of autonomy can supercharge your data collection efforts in the field.
  • How to make sense of vast amounts of raw imagery from each inspection, and distill it down to the most valuable data points - without overburdening your staff.
  • The ways that routine monitoring with an autonomous aerial data solution increases ROI in the long term.
