MENSI invites attendees to meet, learn and share in 2003.

MENSI, the 3D survey instrument manufacturer, announces that registrations are open for the 3rd DiMENSIon 2003. It will be the 5th annual edition of this conference and will take place in the “Chalet de la Porte Jaune” in Paris, France, on October 14th and 15th, 2003.

The 2003 conference will bring together MENSI's 3D scanning and modeling system users, as well as a large number of non-users in various industries keen to discover new developments in 3D scanning technology. This is a unique worldwide opportunity to attend informative sessions and discussion forums on 3D terrestrial laser scanning. The conference is open to 3D laser scanner users and to non-users who are seeking services or who are interested in becoming a user, and provides an opportunity for participants to Meet market experts, Learn more about the benefits of 3D laser technology and Share with other users their experiences. The 3rd DiMENSIon Conference will provide you with valuable insights on the ways that laser scanning technologies can be leveraged to enhance your professional pursuits.

This year, MENSI welcomes Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ralf Schroth, Vice President of FIG (International Federation of Surveyors) as honorary keynote speaker. Professor Schroth is graduated in Geodesy and Surveying from the University of Stuttgart (Germany) in the 70’s. After the probationary period for the national surveying administration in the Baden-W¿rttemberg region, he obtained his “Legal Surveyor” license in 1979. Since 1988 he is a managing director at Hansa Luftbild German Air Surveys and additionally since 1991 he is a lecturer at the University of Hanover in business administration and management for surveying engineers. Said Professor Schroth: “LIDAR systems are becoming more and more important to the surveyor community. Since more than 10 years laser scanner systems have been introduced in the field of remote sensing and nowadays the terrestrial systems have proved to be very successful. The International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) has integrated this interesting topic into its technical commissions and will continue follow it up in the future. In this respect the 3rd DiMENSIon conference will be an important step in the right direction.”
