Optech Heading to Kuala Lumpur for FIG Congress 2014

Automated planar feature detection with Optech LMSFor any surveyor that has ever needed to manually realign data from multiple collects, Regional Sales Manager for the Pan Asia area David Collison will describe how Optech LMS can automate their work by using common planar features and their unique spatial relationships to determine the optimal boresight and calibration values for each collect. A case study involving this technique in action will follow, so interested attendees should drop by the Urban and Rural Land Use Planning 2 session (TS03G) at 11:30–13:00 on Wednesday, June 18.

Also presenting are faculty of the University of the Philippines, who will describe how they teamed up their Optech Pegasus and Gemini ALTMs to map many flood basins in the Philippines as part of the award-winning Disaster Risk and Exposure Assessment for Mitigation (DREAM) program. This presentation will also explore how to optimize the data capture, collection and management processes to get the best use out of the high accuracy and point density of Optech ALTMs, and is scheduled for the Hydrography in Action 1 session (TS06J) taking place at 11:30–13:00 on Thursday, June 19.

Finally, attendees interested in talking with Optech about the latest news in the lidar industry or discussing the best sensor configuration for solving their particular application can head to Booth 88 during the concurrent exhibition at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
