This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

In this once-off webinar, Dr Karen Joyce (Technical Lead of GeoNadir) will show you how to use drones to map your local ecosystems.

As you already know, our precious ecosystems are under threat.

Fortunately, technology is advancing to the point where citizen scientists like us can contribute to real solutions.

One of those solutions involves using drones to capture imagery of our local ecosystems.

Through the use of drones and the associated technology, we can contribute to solving the challenging global problems we are all facing.

ACSA has partnered with GeoNadir to bring you an exclusive webinar to show you how to use drones to monitor ecosystems. Technical Lead and Co-Founder of GeoNadir, Dr Karen Joyce will be running this webinar.

Dr Joyce is a scientist, academic, and educator. During her time as Senior Lecturer at James Cook University and as Education Director of She Maps, Dr Joyce has taught more than 6,500 teachers and students how to capture geospatial data with drones. She has a PhD in mapping live coral cover on the Great Barrier Reef, and has worked as a Geomatic Engineering Officer in the Australian Army.

Whilst continuing her research on the Great Barrier Reef, she is also building an online drone data repository, GeoNadir, to help protect the world’s most-at-risk ecosystems.

She is going to bundle all of her knowledge to give to you.

This webinar will cover:

- How to get started with drone mapping.

- How to map your local ecosystems with drones.

- What you need to be aware of when flying a drone in Australia.

- How to process and store your drone imagery for wider societal benefit.

Following this webinar, all attendees who are also members of ACSA will get free access to the GeoNadir Drone Mapping Course (Valued at $695) for free. (If you aren't a member, you can join ACSA here:
