Well, unofficially another summer is in the books. I have been busy working on the next LiDAR
News magazine. This one is going to be available in time for INTERGEO which will be held in
Germany in early October. It will also be distributed at the FARO 3D Conference in Orlando and GEOINT in Tampa, both in Florida the week of
Good news on the ASTM
data interoperability subcommittee front. We have two important new projects
that are going to launch
. The first is the addition of compression, which will
affect the core and require a new version. The second will be an extension to eventually support
both indoor and outdoor mobile scanning. If you have any thoughts or would like to get involved
please contact me.
Remember you can choose to receive either a digital or hard copy of the LiDAR Magazine
the website and encourage your colleagues to sign up for this eNewsletter HERE
. We thank you for your ongoing support in building
this professional community.

Vertical-lift drawbridges are unique structures. To provide clearance for vessels on
waterways, the entire road or rail section is lifted vertically between two towers.
Counterweights, equal to the weight of the road section, reduce the amount of mechanical force
needed to move the section upward or downward. Bridge No. 21, a prime example of a vertical-lift
drawbridge, is located on the Welland Canal in Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada. The 27 ...
