The Esri Survey Summit
and the 3D Mapping and
LiDAR Forum were valuable events that might be combined next year to produce what I think
would be a conference that would appeal to a much larger audience. Please let me know your
thoughts. Esri is investing heavily in support for LiDAR because they see it as critical input to
3D GIS. This is an important emerging market.
At the recent TRB AFB 80 committee meeting
, speaker after speaker noted that the key issue in the
adoption of new technology was not technical - it was organizational. Ted Knaak's follow on
article in this issue recommends a "bite size" strategy of working with customers to help them
with organizational change. See what you think.

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.

Inventory for DOTs Using Mobile LiDAR
DOTs (Departments of Transportation) across the country are mandated by the federal
government to keep track of their roadway assets and to report against these assets to receive
federal funding for their maintenance and repair. Many DOTs conduct roadway characteristics
inventories (RCI) on an annual basis to update and maintain their data relative to these assets.
Traditionally, this has been completed using a boots-on-the ...
