3D Technologies for Asset Actualization

SPAR International, March 30-April 2, 2015, in Houston, TexasAt SPAR International, industry-leading practitioners and today’s most progressive owners come together to spotlight current and emerging 3D technology and lifecycle asset-management solutions. Join more than 90 experts in 3D data, point cloud processing and data delivery as they explain how to improve processes, mitigate risk, get the necessary output, and save time and money.


Cutting-Edge Technologies, End-to-End Solutions

This year, SPAR International features a pavilion dedicated to unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology, where attendees can learn about the market and discuss solutions with major manufacturers. It also features a hologram room — a taste of the future that puts visitors inside a 3D scan. After that, tour the exhibit floor, where developers and manufacturers will be showing the latest solutions developed to solve the industry’s most pressing and complex problems. Attendees will learn about the latest 3D scanners, low-cost handheld devices, mobile mapping solutions, advanced data processing workflows, and more.
