CAPTURE. PROCESS. DELIVER
Remote Results officially launched a ‘Drone Surveying and Mapping’ course in June commencing in Newcastle, NSW. After delivering a number of small, custom training programs over the past 12 months, the team at Remote Results have created a comprehensive 5 day program. The first course was run from Monday to Friday and attendees worked in a variety of industries including, aviation, industrial asset management and surveying.
Remote Results focuses on the “Capture. Process. Deliver” workflow that frames every drone mapping project. The ‘Drone Surveying and Mapping’ course features a balance of practical field-based data capture exercises and office-based processing and editing workflows. ‘Drone Surveying and Mapping’ course participants are able to gain exposure to every aspect of the mapping workflow. For the duration of the course, attendees were provided with access to a range of the latest drone software solutions available on the market. Strengths, weaknesses and best practice for each solution are explored in depth throughout the week.
"I can't recommend this course enough! Signing up for the course was a great decision and by the end of the week i knew exactly what software and hardware we needed to kick start our own drone operations."- Hugh Stephenson, Integral Surveys
Data Accuracy and Integrity
With a background in surveying and spatial industries, Remote Results places a lot of importance upon the accuracy and integrity of drone data outputs.
A large component of the Newcastle ‘Drone Surveying and Mapping’ course focused on understanding the basic principles of photogrammetry, data capture and data processing.
A number of simple techniques and workflows were provided to give attendees a method for verifying and proving the accuracy of their drone data.

Practical and Relevant
Remote Results pride ourselves on providing practical and relevant content that clients will gain immediate value from. With so many drone hardware and software options on the market it’s often hard to know where to begin.
The Remote Results ‘Drone Surveying and Mapping’ course is designed to introduce attendees to all aspects of this exciting industry and arm them with the information they need to begin their journey into mapping with drones – successfully.
Hugh Stephenson of Integral Surveys left the following testimonial after the week in Newcastle.
“Our company has always had the intention of investing in drones for the purpose of surveying and mapping but we simply didn’t know where to begin. As a result it became something that we delayed again and again. I can’t recommend this course enough! signing up for the course was a great decision and by the end of the week i knew exactly what software and hardware we needed to kick start our own drone operations. The content that was covered during the week also taught me how to get the most out of the software. It outlined how to extract the information i need for our surveying projects and our trainer Matt was very knowledgeable and passionate about the industry. The most enjoyable aspect of the course was the workflow; from capturing the data, to processing it and editing it where I was able to see a project move through it’s stages. Great work Remote Results!”
