Description

Description

Scene re-creation with the help of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) has many applications that range from disaster recovery to infrastructure concept design. Creating these scenes with the help of a UAV is becoming more common as the flying camera UAV craze explodes worldwide. Join Autodesk, Inc.'s, Field Innovation Team members as we discuss some ins and outs of generating precise scenes with the help of a UAV. This session will cover camera equipment and UAVs, and we'll also discuss building custom UAVs, taking pictures from a UAV, processing pictures with Photo on ReCap software, breaking larger scenes up into smaller samples, and combining the results into AutoCAD Civil 3D software or InfraWorks software.
