Kite Aerial Photography (KAP) Part 2: Learn to Fly a Kite for KAP

Thursday, November 15, 2–4 PM,  Digital Humanities Institute,  Building 4/Room 2800

Dr. Christopher Baynard, Director, Center for Sustainable Business Practices, and Associate Professor, Department of Economics and Geography

 

In part two of the KAP workshops, participants will learn how to attach cameras, phones, and other equipment to kites, and possibly balloons, for capturing imagery. The participants will fly the kites and/or balloons, weather permitting, to capture imagery of (the UNF campus). The imagery will be reviewed at the end of the session.

NOTE: participants who plan to use their phone to capture aerial imagery should:

  • Clear up sufficient storage on your phone to accommodate imagery
  • Install an app that has an intervalometer— that will allow your phone camera to shoot at predetermined intervals. 30 seconds tends to work well.
  • For iPhones see: I motionTime Lapse Master,Time CalcRŌV Motion, or other. (Test before workshop).
  • For Android see: Open Camera, or other. (Test before workshop).
  • Assume all risk for loss/damage of phone. So far Professor Baynard has flown his phone five times with no adverse effects.

Please contact David Wilson, DHI Tools and Training subcommittee co-chair, by November 14 if you plan to attend.

In the final KAP workshop participants will prepare and process the imagery that they captured in the previous workshops for georeferencing, mosaicking and 3D models using ArcGIS and Pix4D or DroneDeploy. And the end of the workshop participants will have digital products of the imagery they captured for display or further analysis. Attendees should watch relevant training videos for Pix4D or Drone Deploy.
