Drones in Libraries: The Development of an Interdisciplinary Research Service Using Drones and 3D Modeling Technologies at Ryerson University Library
On June 1, 2019, new rules for flying a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) or “drone” in Canada came into effect, requiring drone pilot certification to operate any drone between 250 g and 25 kg. In response to new regulations and the needs of our researchers, the Ryerson Library has initiated the development of a research service dedicated to supporting the use of drones and 3D modeling technologies. Before cancellation due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the joint CAG/CCA/CARTO-ACMLA conference - CAG 2020: Resilience on a Dynamic Planet - provided a national venue to showcase our progress to date. This report will summarize our workshop content and outline existing collaborations and future directions for our research and service.
