The organizers of Commercial UAV Expo announced today they will host the launch of the first and only UAS Mapping Certification in the industry presented by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS).
ASPRS will be hosting a pre-conference UAS Technical Symposium at the Commercial UAV Expo in Las Vegas on Tuesday October 24th. Participants in the UAS Technical Symposium will have the opportunity to sit for the UAS Mapping Certification exam on Wednesday October 25th; however, a full application with references must be submitted to ASPRS by August 31, 2017. Those who are deemed eligible to take the exam will be notified by September 30, 2017. Those who then pass the exam on October 25 will receive their certificates on-site.
Commercial UAV Expo, the definitive conference and trade show for integration and operation of UAS for large enterprise industrial assets, will take place October 24-26, 2017 at the Westgate in Las Vegas.
“ASPRS is widely known as the society that develops and disseminates mapping standards for photogrammetry and LiDAR and provides nationally accredited certifications for those in the mapping profession. We are honored they chose Commercial UAV Expo as the exclusive event to launch their new certification program which is an important distinguishing credential for surveying and mapping professionals using UAS” said Lisa Murray, Commercial UAV Expo Event Director.
