Workshop Progress on the use UAS Techniques for Environmental Monitoring

We are pleased to inform that the next Workshop of the COST Action HARMONIOUS  will be held at the Institute of Botany of the Academy of Sciences in Pruhonice, Czech Republic (at the outskirt of Prague), February 27th. The Workshop will be focused on the progress in the use of UAS techniques for environmental monitoring, and will be opened to all interested parties. Come to Prague to find out about our activities!

Invited speakers:

  • Ewelina Rupnic (École Nationale des Sciences Géographiques, France) – Accuracy estimation and optimization of UAV photogrammetric 3D models – selected real case-studies realized with the free open source photogrammetric suite “MicMac“
  • Michael James (Lancaster University, UK) – Photogrammetric considerations for SfM-based topographic modelling

Special Issues

The best oral presentations will be selected for publication on one of the two Special Issues:

1) Progress on the Use of UAS Techniques for Environmental Monitoring on Remote Sensing (MDPI, IF 3.406)

2) Hydrological and Environmental Modeling: From Observations to Predictions on Water (MDPI, IF 2.069)

Venue

The workshop will be held at the premises of Institute of Botany in the Průhonice castle. Conference hall is actually beautifully restored Knight’s hall of the castle.

Průhonice are located at the outskirt of Prague. Průhonice castle and surrounding park are designated as Czech National Historic Landmark and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The venue is served by Prague public transport. How to find us
