Keywords: GIS, training, UAV in education, drones

Abstract. The achievements of the technical boom of the recent past will inevitably appear in the world of cartography and geoinformatics. One of these relatively new and increasingly popular technologies is drones (UAVs). This article serves a dual purpose: first, it presents the courses offering practical training at ELTE Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest (Hungary) for several decades and lists the tools used in them; second, it shows how information about drone recording can be integrated into which courses. The article also discusses how difficult it is to implement this in university education in Hungary under the current legal conditions, and what obstacles teachers encounter.
