After the lecture’s participants will be able to conduct independent research on the topic of sustainable management of soil and water resources. The acquired knowledge and experience in the application of software, their development, the use of UAVs (drones) and the spatial presentation of the obtained data will provide a strong foundation for their further professional development in the modern world.
