Drone Technical Conference

On November 21st, 2017 the Land Management Division of the Kenai Peninsula Borough hosted a Drone Technical Conference for individuals and  organizations tasked with building and maintaining key infrastructures within our region.  Hospitals, landfills, boat harbors, oil platforms, roads, industrial plants, hydroelectric dams and schools can benefit throughout planning, construction and maintenance cycles from the high-resolutions spatial images that drone and related instrument technology makes easily accessible and affordable.  Below are links to the agenda, welcome address and  the presentations given at the conference.
