The Culver Aviation round table series ended with an offline meetup for students of Podillia State University

On March 30, Culver Aviation held an offline meetup on "Digitalization of land management in Ukraine" at Podillia State University in Kamianets-Podilskyi. 

The company's specialists told the students of the university's Faculty of Agricultural Technologies and Environmental Management about the opportunities and benefits of using UAVs for auditing, topographic surveying, and creating orthophoto plans and high-precision maps, as well as using geographic information systems in land management and agribusiness. 

The offline meetup concludes the spring series of Culver Aviation roundtables dedicated to innovations in land management. The event was timed to coincide with the Day of Geodesy and Cartography, which is celebrated annually on the first Sunday of April. 

Andriy Levchuk, Head of Geoinformation Systems at Culver Aviation, told the participants of the event about the possibilities and benefits of remote sensing and aerial surveying using UAVs. He also focused on the tasks that modern geoinformation systems and technologies can solve and described their connection with cadastral systems.

In his report, Yuriy Toporovsky, Business Development Specialist at Culver Aviation, demonstrated to the students the possibilities of using UAVs and the data obtained with their help in agriculture.  

Yuriy explained how unmanned aerial vehicles are changing the industry and helping to ensure the country's food security by providing the ability to quickly track the condition of crops and monitor in places inaccessible to conventional inspection. This allows agricultural enterprises to use their resources rationally and correct technological errors promptly, thereby increasing production profitability by increasing yields and reducing production costs.

Since UAVs will become the main tool for collecting geoinformation data soon, especially for the agricultural sector, it is important for students of specialized higher education institutions to gain knowledge about the possibilities of their use today, and for agricultural universities to build the educational process by new trends.

The event ended with answers to students' questions and a small photo shoot with the Scythian UAV developed and manufactured by Culver Aviation. In total, the meetup was attended by more than 100 participants.  

The Culver Aviation team is grateful to our partners for supporting our initiative and for the opportunity to share their experience in using innovative technologies with future specialists in the field of land relations in Ukraine.

We thank the management of the Uman National University of Gardening, Poltava State Agrarian University, and Podillia State University for their cooperation! We look forward to new joint events and projects!
