- Arthur Ostaszewski, Michigan Environment Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) Department
This webinar complements two prior ASWM webinars, one in December 2020 on drone basics and one on considerations for drone use planning as part of ASWM’s State-Tribal-Federal Coordination Meeting in April 2021. This webinar focuses on the in-field operation of drones to conduct wetland assessment and mapping. The webinar will provide technical information about options and decisions for drone operators. Examples of different applications and outcomes will be shared, as well as information about where to get additional technical resources for on-the-ground staff.
