Bethesda, MD – As a result of intense interest in the future of the LAS format, the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) has decided to add a LiDAR session to the program for its upcoming ASPRS UAS Technical Demonstration and Symposium in Reno, NV. The LiDAR Sidebar will take advantage of the many experts that will be attending the conference to discuss the new compressed data formats that are attracting attention.
The session will take place at 6 pm on Wednesday 30 September 2015, shortly after the main conference closes. The format being planned is a panel discussion, with each topic introduced briefly by an invited expert, followed by discussion, where users of the various formats are welcome to express their thoughts. Likely topics include: the future of LAS; the rise of compressed LiDAR formats (multiple topics); OGC Point Cloud Domain Working Group; user expectations of LiDAR deliverables; applicability of LAS to terrestrial LiDAR, mobile mapping systems and the relationship to ASTM E57.
Please be sure to check out the full program for the second annual ASPRS UAS MAPPING 2015 RENO. Even if you cannot attend the one-day UAS Data Processing Workshop on Monday Sept 28 will want to arrive by 6PM in order to attend the welcoming social, sponsored by DroneDeploy.
