Optech Incorporated formed Optech Services, a reorganization of Optech's customer support department that offers all Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper (ALTM) customers 24/7 access to a team of professional Optech service representatives.

Also, Optech and Applied Imagery entered a strategic partnership to bundle every shipment of the Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper (ALTM) LiDAR system with QT Modeler software. The Optech ALTM is an accurate and versatile airborne LiDAR data acquisition system, offering laser pulse rates as fast as 100 kHz. The QT Modeler, originally developed at Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Lab (APL) allows standard PCs to process massive LiDAR data sets. The QT Modeler can build point clouds up to 100 million points and surface models up to 200 million points. (Optech, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) (Applied Imagery, Silver Spring, Md.)
