The International Conference on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in Geomatics, the UAV-g 2015, was held in Toronto, ON, Canada in the beginning of September 2015. This was the third edition of this conference devoted to the use of small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in the field of Geomatics. The first two editions were held in Zurich and Rostock, respectively.
The contributions of GeoNumerics have been numerous and varied. Dr. Ismael Colomina has been part of the scientific committee in charge of reviewing the conference articles, and has additionally chaired one session. Finally, he participated on the final Panel Discussion held among experts of various fields related to the UAV-g. On the other side, Pere Molina gave an oral presentation of the paper "A method for simultaneous aerial and terrestrial geodata acquisition for corridor mapping" and participated as jury for the posters presented at the congress.
