The past two weeks have been busy with the CyArk 500 Challenge, InterGEO and the FARO 3D
conferences. The top news from each was highlighted here at LIDAR News including Riegl's RiCOPTER, CyArk's new
partnerships, and the FARO initiatives for the coming year.
Later this week, we are hosting what I think you will find to be a valuable webinar entitled
