The ASPRS UAS Symposium is a combination of Talks, Panels, Vendors, Poster Sessions and  Live Demonstrations geared toward the GIS professional. There is no need to explain to you how UAV’s/UAS’s/Drones will alter the future landscape of Geospatial data gathering and modeling!

Another event of interest in the near future is the Reno Championship Air Races  http://airrace.org/  September 1014, 2014. During the races a “Drone Zone” will be on ongoing inside a hanger at the Reno / Stead Airport featuring numerous commercial and consumer UAV’s.

See also the NIAS – NIAS is a state sanctioned non-profit organization leading Nevada’s candidacy effort to garner an FAA UAS test site des­ignation. Existing state resources such as Special Use Airspace, exceptional flying weather and multiple airfield locations over sparsely populated areas provide an environment for accommodating everything from small low-speed aircraft to supersonic vehicles and puts Nevada at the top of the list for researching, developing and testing the latest in UAS technologies. http://www.nias-uas.com
