SOT - Aerial View of a Woods Walk

Aerial View of a Woods Walk – July 30 (Rain date July 31)

Michael Tucker, of Drone of Arc, will be speaking on the subject of Drones and their beneficial aspects and applications for forest and landowners. Drone services provide a “bird’s eye view” of your property which can capture complex data in both remote and not easily accessible locations. His experience in providing aerial surveying delivers information faster, safer, and more economically than more conventional strategies. Thus, making problem solving and decision making more advantageous for forest owners. There is also the more artistic option of how Michael can photograph landscapes and private property.

Aerial surveillance by drones offer different angles and perspectives as well as views of our properties in different seasons. Drones reduce the impact on the environment, they are easier to deploy when access is needed, and are widely used by forest officials for both wildlife monitoring and tree disease detection.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and LiDAR sensors in drones help accumulate and process data for the well-being of forest land and vegetation. These applications and others, such as Photogrammetry, is a process that Mr. Tucker will explain, in plain language, to help us understand how drones can help us in our overall forest management goals.

Michael Tucker is a photographer, combat veteran, husband, and father. He is a certified FAA Part 107 sUAS Commercial Drone Pilot. He is delighted to join us, Dave and Colette Morabito, on Saturday, July 30 (Rain Date July 31) at the Morabito’s property in Allegany County, 6067 White Creek Road/Route 17, Friendship/Belfast, NY 14739.
