MEGUG is the state’s professional network organization for GIS users, and for the first time in two years, we are excited to put on a conference to get people back together again. Given a widely attended Lunch and Learn in January, we have decided to organize this conference about the usage of drones in geospatial activities. The festivities will involve presentations, tours of the aviation facilities at UMaine Augusta’s Brunswick Center (which houses their aviation and UAS programs) and will be followed by “mappy hour” at Flight Deck Brewing Company, a chance to network with geospatial professionals in a more social setting.
