Introduction-drone newbie

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Just joined.  I am an engineering geologist and I work on dam safety in CA.  We have 11 earthen dams, one of which straddles an actively creeping fault (about 1/2 inch / yr).  We also have a large facility on an active landslide.  So lots to keep me busy.  Am in the process of acquiring a drone and sensors (LiDAR, cameras) and processing software and a right sized pc that doesn't keep me waiting for deformation monitoring and geological mapping.  Trying to make the right decisions now to hopefully save me headache down the road.  I've just joined and I've already gotten some great feedback from members.  I started surveying in high school, worked as an underground mine surveyor, a seismic surveyor in Latin America, scuba instructor in the Bahamas and Haiti, geologist for the USGS, geodetic engineer for UNAVCO, several roles for Trimble and SiRF and now engineering geologist.  I've got 2.5 kids (ok a dog) and a live in a nice home the bank owns!  Thanks!

OK, I've actually got 2 kids so my dog is only 0.5 kids.

If that doesn't work out, you can always trade them in for a larger dog. :-)
