Welcome to the mid - May issue of lidarmag News. Looking ahead on the event calendar, Hexagon 2102 is being held in Las Vegas, June 4-7. I am really looking forward to seeing the progress that has been made with the integration of Intergraph and Leica Geosystems, even if only from a product point of view. No one else has the opportunity that Hexagon does to demonstrate the value of integrated 3D workflows in their target markets. Vol2No3
