The ELMF10 is a two-day technical conference focusing on the use of airborne, bathymetric and terrestrial LiDAR.

The European LiDAR Mapping Forum 2010 (ELMF10), to be held in The Hague in the Netherlands from Nov. 30-Dec. 1, 2010 is a two-day technical conference focusing on the use of airborne, bathymetric and terrestrial LiDAR with a particular focus on mobile mapping to support transport, urban modeling and asset management and GIS applications.

Authors wishing to submit a paper for the conference are requested to submit an abstract of no more than 250 words by visiting

www.lidarmap.org/ELMF/conference/submit_papers.aspx .

The following topics should act as a guideline:

Data Acquisition - Airborne and Terrestrial Lidar: Acquisition systems, imagery and complementary sensors and best practices; in the airborne and terrestrial sectors

Data Acquisition - Bathymetric Lidar: Acquisition and imaging systems and best practices for the flood plain and coastal bathymetry sectors

Data Fusion & Processing Technologies: Geospatial data capture, processing, analysis, management, archiving and retrieval; improving operational excellence; processing mobile imagery

Developments in GIS & Data modeling: 3D visualization, integration with photo-imagery, urban modeling; remote access and processing of Lidar data Industry Issues

European Federal and individual State initiatives; operating and GIS standards, quality and productivity issues; recruitment/training issues Mobile Mapping & Survey: Vehicle-based high speed mapping systems; operational practices and data management

Recent Project Examples: Lidar customers and service providers reporting on experiences in all areas of Lidar and Mobile Mapping, on commercial, State and EU- funded projects

Systems Integration: Technology advances in data capture, data processing and improved operations efficiency

Trends in Technology Development: New developments, applications, operational practices and emerging markets

The deadline for submitting an abstract is 1st July 2010.
