DJI + Trimble Better Together - Base stations, Phantom 4 RTK, + More

DJI, a global leader in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for survey applications, and Trimble, a global leader in survey and mapping solutions, have partnered to offer our customer bases seamless aerial surveying workflows. Join this webinar as we highlight how to use Trimble GNSS hardware for corrections to DJI flight missions and Trimble Business Center to process, deliver, and integrate survey-grade point clouds and orthomosaics from the DJI Phantom 4 RTK UAV.

Attendees will learn:

  • Setup and connect their Trimble GNSS base receivers to use as local correction sources for their DJI flights
  • Utilize the DJI Phantom 4 RTK UAV in field for their aerial survey projects
  • Import and process DJI Phantom 4 RTK UAV data directly into Trimble Business Center v5.40
  • Create and integrate deliverables from DJI Phantom 4 RTK UAV with their survey data in Trimble Business Center

Date: Thursday, December 17
