The map shows the flight area in green. We provide for the whole flight area georeferenced ground control points. The start and landing area (marked in yellow) is close to some agricultural buildings. These buildings and their surrounding provide space for a exhibition (marked in blue). In the exhibition area we provide tables, but NO tents, but there is a roofing, in case of rain. A room with the possibility for presentation and workflow demonstration is within this building complex. For the area marked in orange we will provide high precision georeferenced 3D data, which is available to the exhibitors to demonstrate the quality of their products.

Procedure

Every exhibitor gets a timeslot of about 20-30 minutes, to demonstrate its UAV and/or workflow in action. It is also possible to demonstrate workflow and measurement results in an additional timeslot. As the number of time slots is limited, they will be offered on a first come first serve basis. During the day the companies are free to supply and distribute flyers and other information material to the conference participants.
