Reston, VA - MAPPS (www.mapps.org), the association of private sector geospatial firms, will make a presentation and exhibit at the International Lidar Mapping Forum (ILMF) to be held in Denver, CO February 11-13, 2013.

The LIDAR and mobile mapping market plays an important role in the surveying, spatial data and geographic information systems field in the United States. The commercial focus of ILMF is particularly aligned with the objectives of MAPPS, which is to promote the business interests of the profession.

Nick Palatiello, MAPPS Assistant Executive Director for External Affairs, will make a presentation on Tuesday, February 12 on the "Opportunities and Threats" facing the LIDAR marketplace. He will provide an overview on how the MAP-21 Act enacted into law in July 2012 and the proposed US Geological Survey's 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) could enhance demand for LIDAR in the United States.

"MAPPS is pleased to support ILMF. As the association of the leading firms in airborne, terrestrial, mobile and bathymetric LIDAR, MAPPS has been in the forefront of advocacy of this technology, use of the private sector in the collection, processing and value-added application of LIDAR data, and qualifications based selection for those services. ILMF is important to advancing these goals," said Palatiello.
 
This is the second time that MAPPS has partnered with ILMF. MAPPS will have an exhibit at booth #42a in the exhibit hall.

MAPPS has more than 160 member firms engaged in satellite and airborne remote sensing, surveying, photogrammetry, aerial photography, LIDAR, hydrography, bathymetry, charting, aerial and satellite image processing, GPS, and GIS data collection and conversion services.

The full conference program will focus on all aspects of airborne and bathymetric LIDAR, as well as mobile mapping systems and provide education on a cutting edge technology for development of digital maps for highways and urban areas.

This 10th annual summit is the focal gathering of leaders, pioneers, experts from government, academia and professionals from organizations looking to invest in and benefit from LIDAR technology and services.
