Small to mid-sized mapping projects over terrain with little to no variation are easily tackled by drone operators. What happens when the project becomes much larger and is over hilly terrain? These types of missions can scare off even the most experienced drone operators. Aston BIM is often mapping in the most challenging locations such as the Himalayas. Krishn Pethani, Chief Technical Officer with Aston BIM, joins our host Eric Andelin to discuss how difficult mapping projects create unique challenges.
Specifically, attendees will learn about the following:

• Choosing the right drone for a project
• Considerations in planning missions over hilly terrains
• Flying drones in difficult environments
• Managing challenges with processing large datasets
