Drone Symposium Planned In Wyoming

It seems like drones are showing up everywhere these days and the University of Wyoming is no exception. This coming May 17-18, the University of Wyoming will host a drone focused symposium.

Drones are coming to the University of Wyoming for a symposium that will focus in part on how they can be put to use in the state’s wide-open spaces.

The university’s Wyoming Geographic Information Science Center will host the symposium May 17-18. It won’t just be a lot of droning on — demonstration aircraft will buzz around inside and out.

What are some of the possible use cases for drones in Wyoming, Mead Gruver of the Associated Press suggests “Possibilities include using drones to keep an eye on wildfires and ranching operations.”

After the 2014 drone crash in Yellowstone National Park, where a Dutch man crashed a drone into Grand Prismatic Spring, its only logical that Wyoming would want to become more active with their drone policies. (If you were curious, the Dutch man was forced to pay $3,240 in fines and restitution after the crash.)
