Meet the Authors /
I wanted to make you aware of an important opportunity to positively influence the future of the
geomatics profession. A group of us are working on identifying the top five to ten applied
research needs for our industry. As you can see in the comments to a recent blog
post on this topic the ideas are starting to come in.
On the business side, I re-connected after some 40 years with a long time friend, Jack Vincent
who has been literally writing the book
on what it takes to be more effective at selling products
and services - a skill for which we can always use advice. Let us know what you think.
The October edition of LIDAR Magazine is set to release at InterGEO (Berlin) and the CyArk 500
Annual Summit (Washington, D.C.). If you plan to attend either event and would like to meet up,
just drop us a line.
|CyArk 500 Annual Summit:
Washington, D.C., Oct 7-8|
As part of the CyArk 500 Challenge, the CyArk 500 Annual Summit brings together cultural
heritage, technology, and philanthropy leaders from around the world to share experiences and
best methods for capturing, disseminating and archiving information about heritage sites,
particularly those at risk.
The 2014 Summit will provide an update on the progress towards the CyArk 500 as well as
presentations from leaders on democratizing cultural heritage.

Zealand, I will give a little background about myself. I grew up in Hillsboro, Oregon and have
lived in Oregon my entire life. It made sense to attend Oregon State University as I was aspiring
to become a Civil Engineer. After completing my Honors Bachelor of Science degree in Civil
Engineering at Oregon State, I decided to continue my academic education and ...
