Happy New Year! Welcome to our first eNewsletter of 2013. We survived the end of the world and
barely avoided the Fiscal Cliff. For some reason?I guess it's because I am basically an
optimist?I think 2013 is going to be a very good year, especially for the LiDAR industry.
Here in the U.S. housing and automobile sales are in the recovery mode. China seems to have
achieved a soft landing and I think that the EU has a plan that will allow them to start growing
again in the second half of 2013. U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Pa.), incoming chair of the House
Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, recently said
he's open to every approach when it comes to funding. That is all very
positive for the world economy and 3D markets.
Remember you can choose to receive either a digital or hard copy of LiDAR Magazine
website. Please encourage your colleagues to sign up for this eNewsletter HERE
. We thank you for your ongoing support in
building this professional community.

Frank Lloyd Wright - Documenting
Working with i-TEN Associates and various preservationists throughout the state of Oregon
has been a remarkable experience. Since embarking to document 100 historical buildings in Oregon
with 3D technologies including laser scanning, panoramic photography and various forms of 3D
modeling, our 'Sentinel Project' continues to gain momentum and attention from preservationists
throughout Oregon and abroad. Every site ...

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.

Just How Accurate is
LiDAR?: Mike Tully ? A client told me the other day that some vendors are
promising vertical accuracy of LiDAR deliverables that exceed the LiDAR manufacturer
specifications for that system and asked: Is it legitimate for a service provider to promise
better accuracy than manufacturer specifications? Or, are service providers overselling their
LiDAR services ...

A Perspective: Joe Croser ? Last month I attended Autodesk University (AU)
for the third-time. I was there to support two Oundle Group clients who were exhibiting on the
show floor. I?ve attended AU twice before: once in 2004 when I attended wearing a ?press hat?
and enjoyed back stage access to many key industry execs including the ...
