Systems Training

Setting You Up for Success

Hyperspectral airborne drone or scanning kit training is fundamental to success. When it comes to utilizing an integrated imaging solution from Headwall, we provide training along with each system sold, as well as customized or follow-up training at nominal rates.

In-Person Training

In-person training is held twice each month at our headquarters for customers who have purchased a Headwall turnkey or system-level solution. These training sessions are focused on hands-on experience in a small group learning environment. Headwall provides the industry’s most in-depth training curriculum. We cover all the need-to-know topics and follow up with an overview of Headwall’s powerful post-processing software.

Additional Training

If you would like additional training, please contact us to arrange for an in-person or remote instructional session. You may also request supplemental material from the Headwall Support and Training team.

Training Material

Recorded material and documentation for remote learning are available if you cannot attend our training sessions at our headquarters in person or simply need a refresher! Visit our YouTube Channel or contact us for alternate video links.

Remote Sensing Training Session Plan

Hyperspectral Basics

Each training session starts with the fundamentals of hyperspectral imaging: what it is, how it works, and some of the applications that are ideally suited for this technology.

  • Basics of hyperspectral imaging
  • How our sensors work
  • Scanning operations
  • Airborne data collection considerations
  • Data processing and analysis techniques

Flight Planning

We’ll show you how to properly get your airborne solution ready for flight. You’ll learn how to calibrate your sensor, get the GPS/IMU set up, set the white balance, and much more.

  • Flight planning and setup for data collection
  • Flight planning software
  • Hyperspec software and sensor setup

Post-Flight and Data Processing

Collecting hyperspectral data is a hardware-driven exercise, but data interpretation and exploitation is a function of powerful software you’ll learn how to use. From orthorectification to creating mosaic data cubes, Headwall provides the knowledge you need.

  • Data download and best practices for handling
  • Data processing and analysis techniques
  • Viewing images and spectral data
  • Single and batch radiometric and reflectance correction
  • Single and batch orthorectification
