Drones and Data Flight week

    Hi all,
    For those of you planning on being at IDW the RDA Drone Data Group is
    running a flying hackathon the preceding week that I think would be of
    interest to some here. We’ve themed it along: Earth Science, Agriculture,
    and Conservation, and are planning on testing sensors and data analytics
    tools over some novel flora and fauna biomes, and working on the broader
    drone-data management questions. See the webpage
    for more information
    and the application form but in brief
    *When:* October 28 to Friday, November 2, 2018.
    *Where: *A wildlife sanctuary just outside of Gaborone, Botswana
    *Who: *You – data and domain scientists, Academic, nonprofit and industry
    researchers and developers, all who are interested in/working on
    accelerating science and innovation through the use of research drones for
    data capture.
    *Why: *Because Science, Agriculture, and Conservation are important, and
    this will be a great event for collecting new data, experimenting with new
    platforms, sensors and techniques, learning from and networking with the
    international Drones4Good community, and because it’s conveniently
    co-located with IDW.
    *Cost:* USD 500 (We’re still working to find more sponsors to reduce this
    but currently this includes food, accommodation, and transport from
    Gaborone)
