Much of the buzz at Intergeo was a result of LiDAR and UAV-related developments. Leica
Geosystems introduced their new P20 Scanner. Trimble showcased the TX5 scanner
and SCENE software, fruits of the FARO OEM relationship we've covered on the blog. Optech and
Riegl also made headlines.
The current edition of LiDAR
was well received at both Intergeo and GEOINT - very encouraging. Our team
caught up with friends and colleagues at both shows. I'm already looking forward to next year's
events. Prior to then, you can catch up with us at the MAPPS/ASPRS
in Tampa (next week), or Trimble
in Las Vegas (week after next).
Remember 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
. We thank you for ongoing support in building this professional community.

Historical Facade Analysis -
Alternative Workflows: Paul Tice ? In the world of historic preservation the
utilization of the latest software and hardware isn't exactly shunned, but it is not widely
adopted either. There are numerous reasons for this, I'm sure. I could even venture to say that I
know a few of them. A popular 'certainty' that some have is the perceivably incredible ...

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
