The Revolution is Coming, The Revolution is Coming, The Revolution is Coming?
Yes, change is in the wind, both the evolutionary kind that Nadia Anis explains is slowly
affecting the architectural profession and perhaps even the revolutionary variety. For now I can
only say that some very smart people are working on improving the accuracy of mobile LiDAR
surveys, and they may be getting close to a step function improvement.
That's what I see is a large part of my role as Managing Editor of LiDAR News, to be like Paul
Revere, or what Malcolm Gladwell in the Tipping Point
describes as a
connector?someone who knows a lot of people and can help get the word out through a well
connected network. I am just waiting for the go ahead.
The articles are beginning to come in for the next edition of LiDAR Magazine
. The target
market for this issue is InterGEO?the world's largest geospatial technologies venue. You can
choose to receive either a digital or hard copy of the Magazine on the website and encourage your
colleagues to sign up for this newsletter HERE
thank you for ongoing support in building this professional community.

A Paradigm Change
Every type of professional practice is governed by certain protocol that is accepted as
common practice and which sets the standard of care practitioners are expected to meet.
Architecture practice is no different. The profession has been governed by a long standing
standard of care that puts the architect in charge of documentation when working with existing
conditions. This part of the practice has traditionally been a source of revenue for ...
