The students of the Geomatics Engineering program at California State University Fresno put this issue's "Featured Video" together to promote their four-year degree program. The industry can and must do more to support these programs, just as Leica Geosystems and David Evans and Associates are doing at Oregon State University.
Just a short follow up on Autodesk's recently announced ReCap strategy. This past week they announced the launch of ReCap Photo. It's available to anybody with an Autodesk 360 account for the next few months. From the consumer side?including real estate and insurance professionals?photography will be more important for 3D data capture than scanning.

Look ? Up in the Air, It?s a Bird, It?s a Plane? No It?s Just Another Drone
Drones have been the center of attention recently in the news, especially from their usage as a military tool. The United States war efforts have credited much of their recent success to the use of large military drones to track and target hotspots. Real questions began to surface recently when use on American territory could possibly track, target - and kill a potential ...
