We had a fun day yesterday supporting the O’Fallon, Illinois Chamber of Commerce at the Salute to Scott, a Veteran’s Day celebration for the Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard, and Retired military heroes and their families associated with Scott Air Force Base. We set up our booth and gave away balsa wood airplanes and candy to the children there and talked with a lot of heroes who have sacrificed for our country. It was a great event attended by a huge crowd. We were humbled by the number of people coming by the booth.
We just want to say thank you for all you do to keep our country safe and strong.
The celebration was held at Gateway Classic Cars, here in O’Fallon. What an incredible place! They had hundreds of classic cars and motorcycles for sale in their indoor showroom.
VerticalGeo exhibited at the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Industry Day in O’Fallon, Illinois on April 27. We met a lot of great military and civilian engineers and were fortunate enough to listen to the local United States Army Corps of Engineers Districts present their project forecasts for the near future. It was a very informative day with an opportunity to meet a lot of new people and see some old friends. We had so many people come up to our booth and talk about the UASs we had on display. We had a great time.
We have been flying our DJI Mavic Pro UAS for a month and we really love it. The video is very nice and clear and the still photos are wonderful. Included in this post is a video we took at O’Fallon’s St Ellen Mine Park last month.
We are still learning how to use the Mavic, but it is an incredible UAS. This UAS is very revolutionary in its workflow and integrated systems.
We have had a lot of people lately ask us how to georeference imagery. So, as long as it is a hot topic, we just posted VerticalGeo’s new video tutorial on “Georeferencing Imagery in ArcGIS 10.1 Desktop” on our YouTube Channel. Here it is:
