New ASPRS Director to Speak at ILMF

Hauck will discuss the future of imaging and geospatial information

Dr. Michael Hauck, the new executive director of American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS), will speak at the International LiDAR Mapping Forum on Feb. 17-19 in Denver.

Hauck will discuss the future of imaging and geospatial information with his speech, “From Galileo to Radiohead and Beyond.” In the title, he acknowledges the past—Galileo’s telescope—and the present—the British rock group Radiohead’s use of LiDAR technology to produce a Grammy-nominated song.

“I'll make some predictions which, in 5-10 years, attendees may be able to look back upon and say with pride that they were part of the team that made them happen, and that they got the idea at ILMF,” Hauck said.

ILMF will dedicate the morning of Monday, Feb. 17, to the ASPRS “Hot Topics” session. Admission is included with conference registration.

“We’re thrilled to have Dr. Hauck address the ILMF audience at the 11th annual ILMF,” said Lisa Murray, the director of ILMF. “ASPRS plays a vital role in the LiDAR industry as it is the key organization that sets data format and accuracy standards for kinematic laser scanning and we are grateful for its support of ILMF.”
