With another successful SPAR in the books, attention will now turn to three vendor events in
June: HxGN Live - June 3 to 6 in Las Vegas; Riegl LiDAR, June 25-27 in Vienna, Austria; and the
Optech ILSC, June 25-27 in Toronto, Canada.
Because they are at the same time, you will have to choose whether to attend Riegl or Optech, but
rest assured LiDAR News will cover all three.
As I mentioned last time, at the top of my "to do list" was a demo of Autodesk's recently announced
did and it is impressive. The user interface has been designed for a tablet and the platform
strategy has the potential to open up laser scanning and 3D photography?what Autodesk likes to
call reality capture?to the masses. The roadmap is in place, now it's all about execution.
We thank you for your ongoing support in building this professional community.

An Intro to Mobile Mapping System
Mobile mapping innovation seems to be everywhere, at least in the 3D LiDAR world. Just a year
ago conversations about mobile mapping involved topics like, ?What is it??, ?What can you do with
it??, or ?How accurate can it really be?? Well, most of these questions have been answered,
except for the one about accuracy. Put two surveyors in a room with a tape measure and ask them
to measure something. Then ask them to agree on ...

ZEB1 Product Review
: Cyn René Whitfield ? As the LiDAR market continues to evolve
consumers are benefiting from more and better choices in the technology to capture as-built data.
The original LiDAR scanner, about the size of a desk mounted on a tripod has now evolved in about
12 years to smaller, dynamic data collectors mounted on vehicles. Now the power of 3D ...
