Optech announces 6th International Terrestrial Laser Scanning User Meeting
Toronto, Canada, December 6, 2011
Optech Incorporated, the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced lidar and
camera survey instruments, is pleased to announce that it will be holding its 6th International Terrestrial Laser Scanning
User Meeting on June 26-27, 2012 in Nice, France.
End-users and selected experts in both static and mobile terrestrial laser scanning will present practical, real-world
projects and examples. These presentations will engender discussions on different set-ups, strategies, successes and
challenges in using lidar in an ever-changing marketplace. Topics will include effective mapping techniques applied to a
variety of applications—from natural hazards to engineered formations—and how to successfully take a project from field
measurements to creating final deliverables.
“The surveying industry worldwide has now fully embraced 3D scanning and point cloud-based surveying as an important
mainstream methodology,” says Brent Gelhar, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing.” Our aim is to share all
the knowledge gained by real users and drivers of tripod-mounted scanners, mobile mapping systems and other related
data fusion tools, and ultimately learn from the active client base to develop innovative new tools for their work.”
Optech hosts regular user events for its clients and representatives in terrestrial and airborne mapping. These events
disseminate useful information and techniques. In addition, by listening to its clients, Optech ensures that its leading-edge
technology is focused on real-world mapping and surveying needs.
Both users and potential users of Optech technologies are welcome to submit abstracts. You are also welcome to register
if you simply wish to attend to learn more about the role of lidar in solving your surveying needs. More information is
available on Optech's website at www.optech.com/i3dugm.
