SPAR 3D Expo and Conference, a global event for 3D technologies, has announced that Bentley Systems CEO Greg Bentley will deliver a keynote presentation titled “Lessons Learned through Reality Modeling for the Pope's Visit to Philadelphia.” He will discuss how state-of-the-art context capture was used in planning Pope Francis's visit to the U.S. last year.

Bentley will show how the latest advances in software for reality capture through digital photography was a game changer for the Pope's visit, and how it points the way to future advances in reality modeling, continuous surveying and the visual operations of infrastructure assets.

"This incredible undertaking is a prime example of how 3D technologies are being utilized in unique ways to solve complex challenges," says Lisa Murray, director of SPAR 3D Expo and Conference.

The presentation will be held on April 12, at 10 a.m.

SPAR 3D is held at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in The Woodlands, Texas.
