Progeny Software Training Session

Priority: No
College Calendar: Show

Are you wondering, what is the best way to leverage UAV-based remote sensing systems? Are you interested in mastering skills to rapidly extract information from images acquired with a UAV? Is it your desire to be able to independently analyze your UAV/Drone data without needing internet access—instead, locally processing your data and maintaining your data privacy?

If you answered “YES” to the above questions, then this training workshop is for you.

With support from Progeny, we are hosting a workshop on Progeny software, which is designed to rapidly extract replicate ortho-images and metrics of small agronomic research plots from raw overlapping drone imagery, without requiring internet connectivity, Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) GPS, ground control points, shapefiles, high-performance computing, or programming expertise. For your information, attached is a short description of the software.

The workshop is going to be from 9:00 – 10:30 am, April 19th 2019, at ICSC: Indiana Corn & Soybean Innovation Center, Room 1123. Anthony Hearst, the developer of Progeny, will be the coach providing the training. If you are a Purdue student, not only will you get hands-on training in the operation of Progeny, but if you are interested in running your own data with Progeny, you will have the opportunity to acquire a license to run the software FOR FREE for one year.  

Registration for the workshop is free. If you are interested in taking part in this workshop, please complete the survey below. If you have other questions, please contact either Jason Adam (, Anthony Hearst (, or Yang Yang (
