Optech to Host Second Innovative Lidar Solutions Conference

Optech Incorporated, a leading manufacturer of advanced lidar survey instruments, is pleased to announce that the second Innovative Lidar Solutions Conference (ILSC) will be held in Toronto on May 31 - June 3, 2011. An initial call for presentations has been issued.

The broad acceptance of lidar data as an essential tool for 3D modeling, mapping and analysis is fostering expanded use into new application spaces, including railway asset management efforts, long-range glacial modeling from static sensors, and ISR initiatives via UAV platforms. ILSC 2011 represents an open forum for industry professionals to discuss best practices and explore real-world lidar solutions. Topics of special interest will include new methods for maximizing project accuracies, application-specific sensor designs and exploring the challenges of delivering data to a dynamic spatial-information marketplace.

“Our previous ILSC was a huge success, both for our clients and for us,” said Brent Gelhar, Vice President, Sales and Strategy. “Change is very rapid in our industry, and a forum that focuses on practical solutions to problems rather than academic discussion is a real benefit to our existing and potential clients. Optech's airborne, static and mobile lidar systems are now well-integrated with camera and imaging survey workflows, so we're excited to have a chance to explore real-world issues more deeply. The focus of this conference is to communicate.”

Both users and potential users of Optech technologies are welcome to submit abstracts. You are also welcome to register if you simply wish to attend to learn more about the role of lidar in solving your surveying needs.

More information is available on Optech's website at www.optech.ca/ilsc2011.
