In the name of cross-RDA collaboration I'm hoping you'll find this event interesting and appealing enough to join us, but even if not, your students might be interested and/or see this as a way to partialy fund attending P14
The drone data IG is hosting a pre-event hackathon working on the LANDRS (Linked And Networked DRoneS) project where amoungst other things we're working on creating an ontology and building an OpenAPI sepecification for creating a Restful API for building linked data native drone data applications.
There are multiple motivations for this work but one whicht may be of particular interest to you is that drones have radically reduced the cost of capturing remote sensing data (relative to manned aircraft/satelites). It would be great to have your members view and technical expertise input on how our API and data model can support those already using drones to capture data that can enable development and/ be leaveraged as a value product in itself even.
Details, registration, and funding links are all in the attached flyer/on the RDA program here
