June 26, 2006--Perhaps nothing in the field of technology has evolved more dynamically in the last twenty years than the technologies of positioning. Latitude, longitude and elevation are easier than ever to determine and enable efficiencies never before imagined. What next?
On Thursday, September 21, the University of New Hampshire, together with Keystone Precision Instruments and Trimble Navigation Ltd., will present a one-day opportunity to see, touch and use a wide variety of positioning technologies. This is a great opportunity to meet and talk with fellow professionals and the people designing future technologies. Many of the events will take place outdoors; the rain date is Friday, September 22, 2006.
Especially designed for a wide spectrum of users such as surveyors, contractors, ocean mappers, engineers, municipal planners, utility companies, indeed everyone into positioning and location can learn what's current and what's coming in the traditional, GPS, inertial guidance and other automated techniques.
Register for the field day, see future-ready GPS, magnetic levitation total stations, inertial guidance, graders and dozers shaping the earth on their own to 3D plans, three dimensional scanning. The General Registration Fee of $50.00 covers all day access to demonstrations, speaker's presentation area, parking and a bag lunch. Student registration is at no charge and lunch is included for those students who are pre-registered. Additionally, courses for CEU credits are being offered for $150.00. Sign up for more than one course and get $50.00 off the second course. Upon availability of seating, UNH faulty/staff and students who are interested in auditing a course without obtaining CEUs would have an opportunity to attend at course at no charge, but pre-registration is required.
There will be a student competition for colleges and universities all over the northeast. If you are interested in the competition, please contact email@example.com.
Conveniently located for the entire New England area, the UNH campus is easy to get to and provides an exciting and attractive environment for this day of exploration and learning. Shuttle services will be available on campus the day of the event.
Mark your calendar now and register early so you can be part of the three early-bird registration drawings to be held on July 25th, August 25th and September 10th. Each winner will receive a pair of Boston Red Sox tickets (some restrictions may apply).
