December 17, 2013 (Portland, Maine) - The International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF), taking place February 17-19, 2014 in Denver, is delighted to announce that the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) will be running special ‘Hot Topics’ sessions alongside the main conference.
ASPRS plays a vital role in the LiDAR industry as it is the key organization that sets data format and accuracy standards for kinematic laser scanning. With a full morning dedicated to ASPRS on Monday, February 17, ASPRS will provide an update on activities of the society associated with LiDAR and point cloud processing including:
- The new concept of LAS Domain Profiles
- The newly created bathometric profile for littoral mapping
- Accuracy metrics being jointly developed by the ASPRS and the USGS for LiDAR calibration and project geometric correction
- Best practices specifications for mobile laser scanning
Admission to the ‘Hot Topics’ sessions is included with International LiDAR Mapping Forum conference registration.
Registration is available online now. Full conference, single-day and exhibits-only passes are offered. Group discounts are also available. Early registrants receive the best rates.
About International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF)
International LiDAR Mapping Forum is the premier event for the LiDAR market, attracting professionals from all over the world. A major focus of this event is the three day world class Technical Conference, where speakers from the international LiDAR community will report on latest technology advances and recent projects, highlighting actual experiences and lessons learned in aerial, terrestrial and bathymetric LiDAR with a focus on mobile mapping. Another key component of the ILMF event is the international exhibition held alongside where dozens of leading companies in this rapidly growing global market will be showcasing new LiDAR products and a wide range of new technologies and services. Technical workshops are hosted by exhibiting companies and are aimed at providing operators, managers and potential purchasers of equipment with an understanding of the basic principles and fundamental benefits and technology associated with LiDAR while providing the more seasoned experts with up-to-date information on current developments.
