The second annual technical UAS symposium sponsored by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) is scheduled for September 29-30, 2015 in Reno, Nevada. Expanding on the highly successful format and events of last year’s symposium this year’s event will include test flights, UAS data processing, and workshops.
Great speakers and industry-leading technical content is already lined up for 2015 and we anticipate the test flights, on-site data processing, and live demos will be even better than last year!
Purpose: To assemble UAS developers and researchers, along with geospatial service providers and users of geospatial map data, to share information, showcase new technologies and demonstrate UAS systems in action (in flight).
Mission: To advance knowledge and improve the understanding of UAS technologies and their safe and efficient introduction into our national airspace, government programs and business.
Highlights of the symposium:
Demonstrations (in-flight) of UAS technologies
Test flights and on-site data processing
Data processing training workshops
Collaboration opportunities among users, mapping professionals, government, academia, developers, and UAS product and service providers

Founded in 1934, the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) is a scientific association serving over 7,000 professional members around the world. Our mission is to advance knowledge and improve understanding of mapping sciences to promote the responsible applications of photogrammetry, remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), and supporting technologies.
ASPRS: The Imaging and Geospatial Information Society
The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) has officially incorporated the tag line "The Imaging and Geospatial Information Society," as part of the ASPRS identity. This tagline is representative of the Society's "New Vision," as it makes the changes necessary to better position its focus for the future.
