Looking for presentations to hit while in Denver, CO next week for ILMF? Here's some featured presentations from our sponsored exhibitors... 

Featured Presentations at ILMF 2012

"High resolution point clouds"
January 23, 3.20 - 4.20pm - Centennial ABC Room
Basics to LiDAR Workshop Series
Steve du Plessis, Director Photogrammetry, Intergraph|ERDAS

High resolution point clouds, such as those produced by Leica ALS LIDAR sensors or with stereo imagery processing software like LPS eATE, can provide excellent data sources for examining change over time in above-ground features such as buildings, trees and other types of vegetation. Of particular interest is the identification of illegal construction activity, the addition of new floors to buildings, or damage incurred during earthquakes and other disasters. By using multi-date point cloud layers, these types of change can be efficiently identified and mapped.


"Mobile mapping systems LiDAR basics"
January 23, 4.20 - 5.20pm - Centennial ABC Room
Basics to LiDAR Workshop Series
Richard Rybka, 3D Mobile Mapping Specialist, Topcon

This workshop provides an understanding of mobile mapping systems technology, including system core components, available sensors, and additional hardware that formulates a complete system. Overview of data collection, processing, data calibration methods, and system accuracy is explained, along with business opportunities and challenges. Discussion on software workflows for data extraction and management


"Echo digitization, full waveform analysis and online waveform processing in airborne laser scanning"
January 23, 4.50-5:30, Centennial FGH Room
Andreas Ullrich, Chief Technical Officer, Riegl, Austria


"The science behind breaklines"
January 24, 8.30 - 9:00, Centennial FGH Room
Lewis Graham, Chief Technical Officer, GeoCue


"Utility corridor management to meet regulatory requirements"
January 24, 11.00 - 12.00pm, Centennial ABC Room
Basics to LiDAR Workshop Series
Alastair Jenkins, President and CEO, GeoDigital

GeoDigital, one of the industry leaders in acquisition and delivery of Geospatial information for utility corridors will be presenting a one hour session on the use of LIDAR for utility corridor management to meet regulatory requirements. This session will cover basic LIDAR principles (what should be specified and technical requirements) and will show how this technology can be used to capture and manage asset information in an on line Geospatial context.


"Best practices from acquisition to LAS file export for mobile mapping systems"
January 24, 12.00 - 1.00pm, Centennial ABC Room
Basics to LiDAR Workshop Series
Joshua I France, Applications – Systems Engineer, Riegl

Mobile mapping systems collect millions of points per second, and thousands of pictures per mission; this amount of data can be overwhelming without the proper practices. Best practices help customers and consumers of LIDAR data get the most out of the data. The accuracy bar is constantly being raised by both the Departments of Transportation and users. This workshop will focus on how acquisition practices can help reduce error, reduce post processing time, and increase the efficiency of mobile mapping systems. It will also show some of the latest data


"Quantification of fire risk in forested regions of Colorado"

January 24, 3.00 - 3:30, Centennial FGH Room
Dr Mark Hanus, Senior Biometrician, GeoDigital International


"Point cloud change detection"

January 25, 10.00-10:30, Centennial FGH Room
Steve du Plessis, Director Photogrammetry, Intergraph Corporation


"What’s our LiDAR distribution story?"

January 25, 11.00 - 12:00, Centennial ABC Room
Basics to LiDAR Workshop Series
Mike Rosen, Engineering Manager, LizardTech

How big is LIDAR and what does that mean to me? With scan rates increasing every year and exploitation software moving from derived DEMS and Contours into the Point Cloud proper, the question is increasingly pressing. This talk describes the context of and the emerging solutions to LIDAR distribution. In this presentation they look at current approaches as well as those based.


"Mobile LiDAR and imagery to support MUTCD compliance"

January 25, 1:30-2:00, Centennial FGH Room
Jason Amadori, CEO, Earth Eye LLC


"Hydro breakline enforcement of LiDAR data"

January 25, 1:30 - 2:30, Centennial ABC Room
Basics to LiDAR Workshop Series
Lewis Graham, CTO, GeoCue Group

LIDAR data are commonly collected to develop elevation surfaces and models. These terrain surfaces are often used in hydrological modeling. In order to support such modeling, the LIDAR derived terrain itself must be hydrologically correct. In this workshop they will demonstrate tools and techniques for developing flat water bodies, downhill streams, proper cross-bank correlation and other attributes necessary in ensuring hydrological compliance.
