Dr. J. B. Sharma presents book on drone mapping

Dr. J. B. Sharma, former Assistant Head of the Department of Physics and Chairman of University of North Georgia’s Strategic Planning Committee, is the editor of a book set to release this fall: Applications of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems: Best Practices and Case Studies.

The book was the product of Dr. Sharma’s final research project before he retired in May this year from the University of North Georgia. For this project, Dr. Sharma had put together a team of university faculty, staff, and students to assist his research, and was able to create a detailed digital elevation model and multispectral image mosaic of UNG's Gainesville Campus and a book on map work with small drones.

The drone industry is likely to be valued at $82 billion and generate 100,000 new jobs by 2025, according to the Association for unmanned Vehicle Systems International. Some of these jobs, says Dr. Sharma, will go to college students working on drone programs. The research that has gone into this book, he says, “will help people construct curriculum to train people in the mapping sciences.” At a broader level, he believes that these initiatives will eventually enrich communities across the nation.
