The next stop on the 3D laser scanning show circuit is IHEEP. This conference was not on a lot of people's
radar until all of the mobile LiDAR pros decided this would be a great place to make contact with
the transportation community - agreed. I will be providing an update on the progress we are
making on the TRB Mobile LiDAR Guidelines and Geospatial Tools synthesis projects. See you in
"Sweet Home Alabama."
The BIG industry news since our last eNewsletter is the announcement
by FARO and Trimble that
they signed an OEM and Distribution agreement for the FOCUS 3D. On paper this looks like a coup
for both parties, but I think it will depend on whether the cultures can work together as a team.
The next edition of LiDAR
is taking final form just in time for InterGEO
—the world's largest
geospatial technologies venue. All that register
within the next two weeks to
receive a print copy will be included in our upcoming mailing.

USA's VQ-820-G hydrographic airborne laser scanner is capable of acquiring 200,000
measurements per second and a pulse repetition rate of up to 550 kHz. The VQ-820-G enables the
surveying of both land and hydrographic areas at a new level of spatial resolution.
VQ-820-G stands out as an innovative scanner for simplistic integration, installation, and
operation, as well as ease and speed of data processing. Learn more here.

Who is Checking Your LiDAR
Throughout the years I have seen many projects advertised, awarded, executed and then
delivered to the client. The client receives the data, copies it locally and then final payment
is made to the vendor and life goes on as usual. Then, someone actually checks the data and
notices that there are many discrepancies associated with the scope of work and what was actually
delivered. How does this happen and more importantly, how ...

LFM is a powerful 3D laser scanning software package, which allows users to import 3D data from
numerous 3D laser scanning formats, and exports to 3D plant design integrated systems like AVEVA
and Intergraph, and CAD platforms. LFM 3D laser scanning software provides a complete solution
from registration of laser scan data to as-built modeling. The time, cost savings and quality
improvements afforded by LFM surpass those traditionally associated with 3D laser scanning. Visit us for
