As unmanned aerial systems (UAS) become more prevalent in the skies, the United States is engaged in spirited conversations about their impact on the constitutional guarantees of privacy and free speech. Without an understanding of privacy, the voice of the geospatial community is likely to be overlooked or dismissed. Without an input into such an important debate, there is a substantial risk the geospatial community will wake up one day and find they can’t do the things they want to do. Worse yet, it may find it is no longer able to do what they currently can do with manned aircraft. Join us to learn more regarding the factions, issues, and misunderstandings currently in play for remote sensing as we enter a new era of automated data acquisition.
