Training Videos by Icarus Aerials Mapping and 3D Modeling 101

Training videos in the Art of Mapping & 3D Modeling with Drones – Teaser

Learn from the expert drone pilot team at Icarus Aerials how to use your drone to capture data that can be turned into maps and 3D models for your clients.

Creating the Training Videos

Kohlitz worked with Icarus Aerials to create 10 training videos that they would use in their Mapping and Modeling 101 course that they offer online to paying customers. The expert pilots at Icarus Aerials were the first to use Kohlitz’s studio space (see photos below!) The studio and shoot that we were able to provide, gave their informative training videos the professionalism that they themselves exert, and which their previous homemade training videos lacked. Through editing, Kohlitz was able to add screen shots of the software they use, animated graphics that gave further detail to their comments, explainer animations to help visualize harder concepts and close up video shots of the drones and models they referred to, all to create an engaging experience for Icarus Aerial’s audience.

This is only the teaser video but if you like to see the 9 other videos Kohlitz created or are interested in learning more about making money with your own drone(!) visit and sign up to receive access to their 20+ training videos.

Lewis: Hi, I’m Lewis.

Trevor: And I’m Trevor.

L: We’re with Icarus Aerials. We’re doing this online mapping and modeling course. In this course,
you’re going to learn a whole bunch of stuff. Trevor, who should be taking this class?

T: Anybody who wants to do more than just take pretty pictures. We’re going to show you how these drones can make you’re a lot of money by collecting data, actionable data.

L: So if you’re in agriculture or you’re in construction or you’re a surveyor, you want to do roofing inspections, you need to do insurance inspections, you’re trying to measure stockpiles, you work on a mine, anywhere having a bird’s eye view and actionable data is relevant, is going to want to take this course. Trevor, explain to us mapping and modeling and what we’re going to be doing.

T: We’re going to go over the best practices from picking your hardware, using your hardware, tuning your hardware for the job, how you’ll gonna flight plan, what software you’re going to use. You’re going to stitch this together, we’re going to have very high res maps, aerial surveys, and we’re also going to have the data to get a 3D model showing all the contours of your land, measurements can be gathered from that. It’s going to kind of be a vertical data workflow.

L: We’re gonna teach you everything you need to know so you can make more money or be more desirable to your customers because you have more skills that they can use on the job.
