Optech Wraps Up Successful 6th International Terrestrial Laser Scanning User Meeting

“Our goal was to bring into focus recent developments in mobile and terrestrial laser scanning and their integration into novel applications with the needed level of detail, accuracy and precision,” said Julien Losseau, Managing Director of Optech in Europe. “The presenters supported this vision, especially the keynote speaker, James Kavanagh (Director Land Group, The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in the UK). His core message was the need to communicate the value of lidar technology to the vast number of potential users outside the traditional surveying world. Interacting with other sectors encourages the development of novel products and applications, and the lidar industry will benefit from the outsider perspective. The aim is to unlock the potential of the point cloud by providing new tools to extract information and integrate it with information from other sensors as well.”

Among the topics discussed at the conference were exciting new applications in the field of building infrastructure management, which is expected to undergo powerful development similar to that experienced by the GIS industry since its inception in the early 1990s.

“We really exceeded our conference goals,” Losseau said, “especially in light of the excellent turnout—a total of 70 attendees from 23 countries.”

Optech hosts regular user events for its clients and representatives in airborne, mobile and terrestrial mapping. These events disseminate useful information about lidar survey techniques. In addition, by listening to its clients Optech ensures that its leading-edge technology stays focused on real-world mapping and surveying needs.
