This microcredential first guides participants through Transport Canada regulations pertaining to the safe and legal operation of small remotely piloted aircraft systems (sRPAS). Next, there is a thorough discussion of elements related to conducting a site survey and mission planning. This is followed by an overview of structure-from-motion (SfM)-based photogrammetry image processing techniques using color, multi-spectral, and thermal drone images. The microcredential ends with practical examples of NDVI, radiometric thermal orthomosaics, and multi-spectral GIS analysis.
