 Upcoming Workshops

Save the Date for June 14th, 2018. Our workshop will be held at the University of Florida’s Mid-Florida Research and Education Center (MREC) located at 2725 S Binion Rd, Apopka, FL 32703

This will be a VERY special Workshop focused on LiDAR Data Processing Workflow from Sensor to End-User.  The Workshop presenters will include RieglUSA, GeoCue, Cardinal Systems Merrick & Co. and many other Federal, State and Local agencies. Various presenters have agreed to discuss how they process LiDAR data from the time it is acquired on the sensor, through the initial processing to construct a trajectory, to the methods for rectification/calibration, and finally to classification.
