The Alabama DOT put on what was one of the most enjoyable conferences I can remember attending.
IHEEP 2013 will be hosted by Kansas DOT September
8 -11 in Overland Park, Kansas. The DOTs are facing one of the most difficult challenges of any
government agency. Their funding is being cut in some cases to pre-1990 levels while their assets
are badly in need of repair. Innovative geospatial technologies such as 3D model-based design,
mobile LiDAR and machine control are critical to their ability to do more with less. It's a major
business development opportunity.
The next edition of LiDAR Magazine
will ship just in time for INTERGEO
, the world's largest geospatial
technologies venue and GEOINT 2012
, one of the most
important defense industry conferences. Our team will be on-site at both events—drop us a
line if you'd like to meet up. We appreciate your support in building this professional community.

Preserving Oregon's History - One
Scan at a Time
A couple of years ago, my colleagues and I were researching applications for our laser
scanner. As a company, i-TEN Associates was still pretty green on the use of the scanner and the
markets that would most benefit from the technology we were holding. Historical preservation was
a topic that kept coming to our attention and seemed like something that we could do. It was most
certainly an interesting topic and the more I ...

BIM: John Russo AIA ? Another scan to BIM modeling project is getting
underway and I know it's just a matter of time before the monster rears its ugly head. It's so
predictable, but it seems that no matter what I do to avoid it, no matter how hard I try to deal
with it up front, the monster keeps re-appearing. If I could only find a way to make it go away
New Point Cloud Modeling
Workflow Speeds Revit MEP Modeling: Chris Scotton ? Revit loves ?perfect?.
We all know it?s an incredibly powerful tool for new construction design which is almost always
perfectly plumb, perfectly parallel. However, in the as-built world, perfect is merely a lofty
ideal brought to earth by the reality of sagging pipes, bowing walls and undocumented ...
ScanLook Experience Outside
the U.S. : Jeff & Daniel Fagerman ? Recently our company, LiDAR USA was
asked to scan 1,000 miles of railway outside the US. In this short article I would like to share
the non-technical considerations of the project, mostly related to working projects outside of
the U.S., as well as on a rail system. Meeting Equipment Requirements and Limitations ...

ClearEdge3D has released version 3.0 of its EdgeWise Plant software, which can
automatically model pipes, tanks and other cylinders from point cloud data. The software's
automated feature extraction algorithms, fast-finishing tools and SmartSheet™ intelligent
pipe technology dramatically reduces the time and cost of 3D modeling. Clients report workflow
savings of up to 70% over other pipe modeling software. Visit our site for
