ISPRS Workshop – Laser Scanning 2011

Details: The Laser Scanning 2011 event will be the seventh of a series of ISPRS workshops about laser scanning that began back in 1999. It is aimed to bring together scientists, system developers and practitioners from different disciplines who are focused on the modelling and application of point cloud data acquired from laser scanners and other active imaging systems such as range cameras.

“The applications of point cloud data captured from laser scanning instruments are increasing in number and diversity every year. Airborne laser scanning is an important technology for the production of digital elevation models and 3D city models and in forestry and hydrology. Static terrestrial laser scanning has been adopted for many engineering purposes such as as-built documentation deformation monitoring, the recording of cultural heritage sites and the measurement of the human body. In addition, the past few years have seen a considerable increase in the number of vehicle-borne mobile laser scanning systems available on the market in response to the ready uptake of this technology for rapid corridor mapping.”

32nd Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing

The Canadian Remote Sensing Society’s (CRSS)32nd Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing will be held From June 13th to 16th in Sherbrooke at Bishop’s University campus. It will be a co-hosted event with the Congress of L’Association québécoise de télédétection. The Conference provides an opportunity to present scientific and technological advances or to see first-hand the latest advances in remote sensing.

CIG (Montreal) – Geomatics Symposium 2011

CIG (Montreal) – Geomatics Symposium 2011

The Montreal branch of the Canadian Institute of Geomatics (CIG) will be celebrating its 30th Geomatics symposium  “Geomatics 2011”, which will be held October 12th and 13th at the Hilton in Montreal Quebec.

CIG (Montreal) - Geomatics Symposium 2011Geomatics 2011 reflects the maturity and perpetual innovation that is at the core of our industry. In the current context of economical recovery, organizations remain cautious in their investments while being aware that they need to improve their processes, rationalize their spending and increase the value of their data. The term “convergence” comes to mind. Whether we think of the convergence of data (assets, procedures, results, objectives or other) or the convergence of industries (civil engineering, architecture, urbanism, etc) geomatics is uniquely positioned to play a central role in that convergence through its ability to aggregate, position and represent information.

Geomatics 2011 is a conference for managers and technical staff alike from the public or private sectors. Participants will have the chance to listen to experienced speakers present their latest accomplishments, new products and services and their vision of what’s to come. Just like in years past, you will also find a large exhibition floor with the key players of the geomatics industry. Also, you will definitely want to attend major networking event.

Mark your calendar today. Tweet it to your friends and colleges.  And don’t forget to update your Facebook and Linkedin pages. Geomatics 2011 will be a thirtieth anniversary you won’t want to miss! I look forward to seeing you all at Geomatics 2011.”
