intro
I have just returned from the Transportation Research Board annual meeting in Washington, DC. More than 12,000 people from around the globe attended and 3D laser scanning was one of the many technologies on display with a couple of data collection vehicles on the floor. Conspicuous by their absence were UAV systems, although there were a couple of sessions on the topic.
Congratulations to John Russo and the many hard working members of the USIBD who were recognized with an article in Engineering New Record that promoted their just released standards documents. ENR is the bible of the AEC industry and this is certain to get more people interested in 3D documentation and the USIBD.
As our professional community continues to develop we want to thank you for your interest and support. If you have an idea for an article please let me know. You can choose to receive either a digital or hard copy of the LiDAR News Magazine on the website and please encourage your colleagues to sign up for this eNewsletter HERE.
Best regards,

Jason Amadori 
Who is Checking Your LiDAR Data?: Jason Amadori ? Throughout the years I have seen many projects advertised, awarded, executed and then delivered to the client. The client receives the data, copies it locally and then final payment is made to the vendor and life goes on as usual. Then, someone actually checks the data and notices that there are many discrepancies associated ...

The Use of 3D Data in Architectural Forensic and Conflict Resolution: Nadia Anis ? As architects involved with forensic work for many years, we have used the same diagnostic tools. These tools have, on many occasions, proven inadequate for the complex issues or even the geometry of today?s architecture. Often times the forensic work is conducted as part of ...
