Unoccupied aerial vehicles (UAVs), Unmanned aerial/aircraft systems (UAS), unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), remotely piloted aircraft (RPA), drones, and other autonomous vehicles and systems (AVS) have forged a path as important tools in geographical inquiry of landscapes. Scholars are now utilizing UAS and autonomous systems to address theoretical and empirical questions in natural resource management, ecology, environmental management, meteorological observation, terrain modeling, and archaeological research, among a host of topics. Similarly, universities and colleges around the world are developing curricula in a variety of formats (e.g., undergraduate and graduate level, hybrid courses, massive open online courses, among others) to allow for these systems and their unfolding development to be introduced to the next generation of geography scholars.
In this panel, graduate student from across the field will share their views and insights into how UAS technology has impacted their careers to date and how they see their use of these technologies will evolve in the future.
