The Hawaii Association of Watershed Partnerships (HAWP) presents a capacity building workshop for conservation professionals statewide. The workshop will highlight innovative approaches in conservation and natural resource management, specifically imagery and image technology. Sharing technology-based practices is critically important for resource managers to keep pace with rapidly expanding technologies and applications. The workshop will feature presentations on satellite imagery applications and advances, LIDAR, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), remote camera applications, and field applications for smart tablets.
Presentation blocks will include panel discussions with the speakers and a demonstration session at the end of the day where workshop participants can test out equipment, imagery and engage presenters.
