3D laser surveying has become an important enabler of efficient plant revamp and upgrade
projects. This AVEVA Business Paper describes how plant owner operators and engineering
contractors can gain maximum value from this powerful technology, to reduce the cost, risk and
downtime of plant modification projects. Readers will gain valuable insight into avoiding common
mistakes in the use of laser scanning and ways in which 3D scan data can become a valuable asset
for plant lifecycle management.

How 2012 Could Shape the Future of
The geospatial profession, especially those with interest in LIDAR and laser scanning, may
look back on 2012 as a pivotal time for market growth. This year was historic for MAPPS, the
national association for private sector geospatial firms. While celebrating its 30th anniversary,
MAPPS has seen markets and technologies change and expand over the past three decades, but the
mission of the organization has remained constant -- to advocate for...
