As you are reading this the Esri
User Conference will be in full swing in San Diego, CA. The Survey Summit and 3D Mapping and LiDAR
Forum took place over the weekend. In all, I made three presentations involving the
Division and the concept of a unified transportation data model.
One of the issues we discussed is the idea of licensing for geomatics professionals. Obviously a
charged subject, but one proposal that I am planning to make is the idea of a creating a new
category for licensed professional engineers who specialize in geomatics. This would be similar
to adding a structural specialty to your PE license. It is not a total solution, but I do believe
it would be a step in the right direction.

The Maptek I-Site 8200 laser scanner is designed for underground survey applications such as
measuring voids, drives and tunnels. It also has the versatility to handle interior silo survey
and stockpile measurements. The scanner is portable, lightweight and rated IP65. Its 125-degree
scanning aperture provides underground surveyors with the data they need to quickly build
accurate models. Visit our site for more information.

Building a Bricoleur
Earlier this year we had a dozen detectives from a variety of local law enforcement branches
over to our office. They had come for a quick training and strategy session on how to best deploy
some of the 3d Imaging equipment that they?ve amassed over the last few years. During the
training a detective was being coached through capturing a mock accident scene. In the middle of
the event he asked a legitimate question to one of our team members. ?So ...
