Drone Aerial View of Signal Hill Newfoundland
Signal Hill is a scenic hill that overlooks the city of St. John’s in Newfoundland and Labrador. Cabot Tower situated on the highest point of Signal Hill was built between 1897-1900, to commemorate both Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and the 400th anniversary of John Cabot’s (Giovanni Caboto) voyage to the New World.
It is often considered a must stop location for anyone visiting Newfoundland because of it’s history and the spectacular scenic view.
The video below is a scenic aerial view of Cabot Tower captured with a Phantom 2 drone and GoPro Hero 3 that provides a view of Signal Hill that most people will probably have never viewed before.[source: chingascook62 ]
Acadia University Aerial View with a UAV
Master of Science in Applied Geomatics at Acadia University is a unique joint program that is combined with COGS. The joint collaboration between the two education institutes allows students to further build upon their solid undergraduate foundation that they got from their University degree, adding skills in research, analysis, interpretation and presentations.
Acadia University, located in Wolfville, Nova Scotia is one of Canada’s oldest and most respected universities. The video above features some aerial drone footage captured in 2015 of the campus highlighting some the various architecture found at Acadia University.

The GPS Group Focuses on Image Processing Services & Consulting to The UAS Industry
TORONTO, Ontario (August 30th, 2015) – A group of geospatial veterans have identified the need to address the global commercial UAS/drone mapping market and have formed The GPS Group to meet the needs of this rapidly expanding segment within the geospatial and mapping industry.
The GPS Group takes a unique approach to delivering custom image processing services. Many companies are supplying products derived from “black box” solutions that don’t permit operator intervention or incremental editing of the results, The GPS Group goes a step beyond and provides fully customized products and solutions using commercial-grade photogrammetry software products.
“Drones offer a timely, high resolution alternative to conventional imaging platforms and have the ability to get very high quality geospatial information in front of decision makers quickly and affordably,” said Mike Agnes, managing partner of The GPS Group “However, what must also be considered as part of a successful UAS implementation are the techniques and tools used to create those products”
Although they are a new company, its founding partners have well-established track records in the industry. Each member of the team brings complementary and extensive geospatial experience to their clients projects, including commercial UAS operations, remote sensing + GIS, consulting, and geospatial software solutions.
In addition, the company provides coaching and managed services to meet the unique needs of its target market. “UAS professionals and those thinking about embracing this technology, with all of its nuances and special needs, require the same level of sophistication, if not more, than the rest of the commercial mapping industry; we strive to provide these services from a single trusted source,” adds John Dobson, partner and technical operations manager“ By providing option of managed services, this gives our clients the ability to leverage our expertise and experience at a fraction of the cost of implementing them alone.”
The GPS Group brings a deep understanding of the photogrammetric process and are excited to apply their knowledge to the UAS community. In fact, the partners view their service capabilities and market knowledge as having significant value to anyone seeking to establish a UAS solution within their organizations.
Being a good corporate citizen is also important to the company. Hence, they plan to devote a percentage of its available resources to supporting non-profit groups who are seeking to incorporate UAS for the betterment of their organization’s goals.
About The GPS Group:
Every day, The GPS Group helps companies who are seeking to add insight and clarity to the geospatial products they develop for themselves and their clients. The GPS Group specializes in custom image processing services for UAV / drone operators who are looking for a higher standard of accuracy for their terrain and orthoimagery products.

Event: 34th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing
Date: August 27-29, 2013
Location: Victoria, British Columbia
Venue: Victoria Conference Centre
“These are exciting times for remote sensing research and applications in Canada. The recent commitment of funding to launch the RADARSAT Constellation will mean a continued Canadian imaging microwave presence in space. Canadians are leaders in the development of airborne active and passive sensor technologies. We are also on the cusp of multisensor UAV platform development that promises to revolutionize high resolution data acquisition and research. Applications from marine, arctic and northern surveillance, environmental modelling and monitoring, and resource exploration are also coming of age.” Olaf Niemann – General Conference Chair
The 34th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing will take place in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia this summer from August 27 to the 29. This years conference will be the first one under the new independent society (the Canadian Remote Sensing Society – CRSS separated from CASI last fall).
CRSS invites all the Canadian Geomatics, Earth Observation and Remote Sensing communities and any one interested in Remote Sensing to join them in Victoria. The conference program has not yet been finalized and the deadline for papers have been extended so there is still time for those interested in presenting.
The CRSS Canadian Symposiums that I have attended in the past have all been very informative and entertaining and I am sure that this one in August will be no different. To register for the event see the event registration page. http://geog.uvic.ca/CSRS2013/CSRS_2013_En/Registration_Accommondation.html
GEOSPACE An Endless Edge – GEOSPACE EUROPE 2012
Battlefield Situational Awareness, Mineral Exploration & Resource Management, Location Based Marketing, all are enabled by maturing Geospatial technologies, and each will feature in full at GEOSPACE EUROPE 2012.
Join the best of the best to understand new potentialities in applying these tools to Defence and Intelligence, Civil and Commercial, as well as Mining, and Oil & Gas. Among other top military -defence and intelligence thought leaders, we would like to officially welcome:
Admiral Robert Murrett
Deputy Director, Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism (INSCT) & Professor of Practice, Public Administration and International Affairs, Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs | Syracuse University College of Law. Admiral Murrett, will present on “Global Strategic Risk: Defense and Intelligence Challenges“, setting the stage for interactive sessions on Geospace’s ever expanding role in facing global security risks.
This event features significant networking opportunities for delegates with a singular focus, or for those with cross sector interests. Walk the floor, meet Geospace’s elite actors, positioned to discuss and exchange with delegates across the three streams.
Bump into speakers like Weronika Jakubczak, Advisor, Security and Defence Policy, Foreign Affairs, European Parliament. Do lunch with Mark Lucas, Principal Scientist at Radiant Blue Technologies Inc., working at the leading edge of Open Technology Development (OTD) for Geospatial application, or take coffee with Dr. Awni Khasawneh, General Director, Royal Jordanian Geographic Center.
The open format – three stream – cross sector program enables maximum learning, networking and partnering possibilities. GEOSPACE also brings two interactive sessions for delegates to experience.
GEOSPACE opens with a live flight demonstration conducted by Albatros UAS’ CEO Joop Wenstedt, who will demonstrate both military and commercial applications for UAVs. The hands on component continues with Brian Cellura, Miranda Gold, Generative Manager and Senior Geologist, leading a 2 Day Workshop – ‘Cutting edge GIS technologies applied for mineral and natural resource exploration‘.
Amidst exciting developments with interoperability on the defence side, and a frenzy of activity in the commercial sector surrounding the roll out of next generation location based services, a Geospace conference could get lost. Not GEOSPACE EUROPE 2012.
