The International LiDAR Mapping Forum has launched its program for the 2014 conference that will take place Feb. 17-19 in Denver.

The three-day conference will feature experts presenting the latest developments in LiDAR, and it will focus on airborne, terrestrial and bathymetric LiDAR. In ilmf_inbody.jpgaddition, the program will place a particular emphasis on mobile mapping systems used to support transport, urban modeling, coastal zone mapping, utility asset management, 3D visualization and GIS applications.

The ILMF conference also allows attendees to network and learn from a cross-section of business sectors.

“The conference is focused on technology and how to maximize its performance for the benefit of the end user,” ILMF director Lisa Murray said. “The technical papers are being presented by world class speakers and businesses. Each paper is topical, wide-ranging and highly informative to delegates. Any professional at any level who is working in the geospatial community will find answers to their operational and management problems at ILMF. Whether you are involved in areas as diverse as urban and rural asset management, utilities maintenance, coastal and land mapping, railways, environmental impact assessment, 3D data capture and flood prevention, attending ILMF 2014 with industry colleagues and peers will prove a most informative and rewarding professional experience.”

Once again, the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) will present “hot topics” to provide updates on the organization’s activities with LiDAR and point-cloud processing.

LiDAR manufacturers, survey service companies and GIS specialists will display their latest technologies, software and products at the conference. Technical workshops also will take place, as will live mobile mapping demonstrations.

Early-bird registration is available through Dec. 13, 2013. For more information, go to the ILMF website.
