DARTdrones and DroneDeploy Launch Drone Mapping Training Program


DARTdrones announced a new partnership with prominent drone mapping software company DroneDeploy. The program starts this fall with its first workshop, Aerial Mapping and Modeling with DroneDeploy.

The training program will provide education to the thousands of drone pilots licensed by the FAA. Part 107 Certification is only the start for creating and operating a drone mapping service, and this joint education program will bridge the gap in learning for professional drone pilots.

The initial course will focus on collecting and analyzing drone mapping and modeling data. Operators will learn how to acquire quality mapping data and improve accuracy overall.

“Many of our students are interested in offering their aerial mapping services to architects, engineering firms, construction companies, farmers, and environmentalists,” said CEO and Co-founder of DARTdrones, Abby Speicher. “Mapping can be confusing and complex to get into. We are excited that our Workshop will increase the number of qualified aerial mappers in the market.”

Courses start September 9th and 10th in Las Vegas Nevada and will be available in San Francisco on September 30th and October 1st, as well as Ashburn, Virginia, November 2nd and 3rd.
