INTERGEO 2013 was an eye opener, not so much from the technology side,
although the 100' by 300' booths that Leica Geosystems and Trimble stood up were amazing, but to
me it was seeing how much importance the Germans place on geospatial technology. In Germany they
have GIS associations. These are regional groups of geospatial consulting firms who, although
they are competitors, work together to develop new business.
Documentation Conference included presentations from a "Who's Who" in the laser
scanning industry. There is no question FARO has disrupted the market with their Focus 3D and I
don't think they are going to stop there.

Making Tracks to the 2013 NYC Maker
At the end of September I had the opportunity to attend the 2013 NYC Maker Faire in Queens,
NY. This two-day event had more than 70,000 visitors. The Faire was held on the grounds of the
1964 World?s Fair, in the shadow of Citifield and Arthur Ashe Stadiums. The Maker phenomenon has
been growing exponentially over the last few years. At the heart of the Maker movement is the
concept that individuals own the ability ...

New Articles from the LiDAR News team...
Catching Fire! Part
II: Jeff Fagerman ? In an earlier article we reviewed some of the possible
reasons why mobile mapping has not been openly embraced, while at the same time airborne LiDAR
systems (ALS) are very popular. Let?s continue to look at even more reasons, not directly related
to ALS. So far we have identified these areas: There are far more competitive solutions ...
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 ...

of Airborne Topographic LiDAR: Michael Olsen ? In the fall of 2012, the
American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing released a valuable addition to literature
available to the LiDAR community - ?The Manual of Airborne Topographic LiDAR.? The book can be
purchased through the ASPRS bookstore. The manual was edited by ...
