Additionally, this workshop will cover remote sensing workflows in ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Pro. Participants will work with Landsat, Sentinel, and other imagery sources. Workshop participants will develop an exercise or lesson for use in one of their classes.

Autonomous Vehicle Technology Sensors (Air, Land and Sea): What Teachers Need to Know for the Classroom - October 15-16
Application Deadline: 9/11/20

Instructors: Jon Beck, Chris Hadfield, Zackary Nicklin, Ben Richason, Jill Zande
Workshop Description: The Geospatial Dimensions of Autonomous Vehicles Technologies (Air, Land and Sea)
This workshop is designed to address the geospatial dimensions impacting the aerospace, automotive and marine autonomous technologies industries. Educators from these disciplines face many challenges from the rapid integration of technology. Through hands-on experience and discussion, we will cover industry trends and the future impact of advanced technologies integration resulting from autonomous technologies. Attendees will be prepared to use this technology in their classroom using portable, cost efficient experimentation and exercises.
