Well, I told myself I was not going to get involved in the exploding UAS industry, but I just
signed up to attend UAVSI's
Unmanned Systems 2014 in Orlando, FL. It's too important a topic to not at least try to
stay up to speed.
As part of the trip I will be visiting Riegl
. They are celebrating 20 years in business which certainly speaks to the vision of
Ted Knaak, Dr. Riegl and Jim Van Rens, among others who I would like to take this opportunity to
thank and congratulate for all they have accomplished and for setting the bar so high.
I also want to call your attention to the Spotlight article in this issue where Karen Shuckman
and Mike Renslow provide an important update on the ASPRS LiDAR certification process that is
being proposed. Scroll down for articles, videos, news and more.
The kubit webinar series will introduce the latest integrations with Autodesk 2015 point clouds.
Discover kubit's laser scanning portfolio and how to be more efficient in AutoCAD and Revit.

Update on Certification of Lidar
In 2009, an entry appeared on the LiDAR News blog asking some basic questions about the need
for certification of lidar practitioners within the geospatial profession. Professional
certification programs in the mapping sciences (photogrammetry, remote sensing, GIS, and
geospatial intelligence) have been around for a number of years and are offered by several
organizations, but lidar specifically has not yet been ...

continue to do so. It seems that generally when we try something new, we are prone to make
mistakes, no matter how much planning and care we exercise. Since mid 2010, LiDAR USA has ...
