Meet the Authors /
I hope you have had the opportunity to visit the Learn
Mobile LiDAR website which I mentioned in the previous eNewsletter. This is an extremely
valuable and free educational resource concerning the use of mobile LiDAR for transportation
applications and beyond.
I have to believe that Michael Raphael and his team at Direct Dimensions are doing the most
exciting range of 3D projects of any firm that I am aware of. They assisted with development of
the video below and supported the recreation of the Liberty Bell highlighted in this LiDAR News blog
guess that's what 25 years in 3D will do for you.
Remember, you can choose to receive either a digital or hard copy of the LiDAR Magazine
the website and encourage your colleagues to sign up for this eNewsletter HERE
. We thank you for your ongoing support in building
this professional community and if you have an idea for an article please let me know.

Hull Modeling Using Point Cloud Data
from Handheld LIDAR
Capturing 3D point-cloud data of a large, irregular shape is not easy. In the case of a
ship?s hull, it can be quite tricky, indeed. Add to that the complex environment of a busy dry-
dock, with construction and rigging equipment strewn about , achieving a closed surface mesh by
scanning with a terrestrial LIDAR is near impossible, if not at least expensive and time-
consuming. The folks at QNTFI Ltd. in New Zealand (a start-up firm focused ...

3D Scanning Featured in
Rock Music Video: Michael Raphael ? In early May 2014, Direct Dimensions was
contacted by a film production company about helping to create a music video for the band called
Liars. The producers and director had a very clear vision of what they wanted to do in the video
(see the Featured Video), which was show the creation and destruction ...
Growing Support for
Digital Coast in Congress: John "JB" Byrd ? Recent reports and articles have
focused on sea level rise and how technology can be used to monitor, evaluate and plan for the
phenomena. Included in these reports is a focus on a technology known and accepted by the
geospatial community, but new to the mainstream media. That technology is LiDAR ...
LIDAR Best Practices: Part
II ? Field Analysis: Lewis Graham ? In the initial installment, we examined
the initial acquisition segment of an airborne LIDAR project. In this issue, we will move on
through field quality checks. As discussed in the previous issue, it is always best practice to
look for problems that might require a reflight prior to mobilization off the project area ...
