Course Description

The emergence of reliable, accessible, and affordable Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in recent years has led to many new opportunities for creative applications of these technologies. UAVs, also known as drones, are becoming more common and more popular, and there is a growing body of literature demonstrating the use of digital aerial imagery and photogrammetry for scientific purposes. 

Golder has identified many effective uses of drones for contaminated sites and mining applications, and four example applications are discussed in this presentation.These examples are just some of the possible uses of drones for contaminated sites and mining applications and show how coupling aerial imagery from drones with geographic information system (GIS) software can enable an effective, safe, relatively rapid and low-cost means of improving existing field techniques.
