Next Up: Humanitarian UAVs (Drones) with Singularity University and Nethope


In case you missed the most recent of the Nethope webinar series on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (drones), in which Direct Relief’s Director of Research and Analysis Andrew Schroeder facilitated a discussion with Esri on use of the ArcGIS platform for managing, processing, and sharing UAV data, a recording of the webinar is now online at the Nethope Solutions Center.

In the webinar, Esri Technical Product Manager Cody Benkelman highlights how:

  • the rich data content available through ArcGIS Online and Esri premium content providers supports rapid and intelligent project planning.
  • the ArcGIS system for image management enables rapid access to UAV imagery and video, powerful search and retrieval of imagery and metadata from massive image collections.
  • a wide range of analytical tools and on-the-fly processing functions can quickly extract value from imagery and lidar.
  • with the numerous options for sharing data, analytical results, and status maps to a wide range of users and applications (desktop, web, and mobile), ArcGIS provides a comprehensive platform to support the geospatial information requirements of NetHope and its partners.

Be sure to mark your calendars for the next webinar in the NetHope UAV series on January 13th at 11am ET, when Claudia Aparicio of Singularity University’s ASAP project will discuss how UAVs can better guide relief and recovery activities by equipping response teams with real time information on impacted population.
