Be sure to follow for updates from Denver where the NEW, Print Edition of LiDARNews will be launched!
The following are a few updates and reminders from key exhibitors and presenters on what you can expect at the event:

LizardTech Booth# – 203
Basics to LIDAR Workshop by Michael Rosen Presentation title: LiDAR distribution challenges and solutions. Details –
With the increasing use of LiDAR comes a corresponding increase in the frustration of geospatial professionals who need to work with point cloud data. LiDAR files can get unmanageably large very quickly.  This makes the distribution challenge particularly difficult.  In this presentation we will explore the current state of the art approaches to dealing with this problem. At ILMF LizardTech will be showcasing LiDAR Compressor.

Virtual Grid Booth# 95
VirtualGrid specializes in 3D point cloud and mesh processing. VRMesh Survey provides automatic point cloud classification solutions for airborne and mobile LiDAR. Removing vegetation, detecting ground points, extracting building footprints and creating 3D buildings can be automatically done in one click with high accuracy, which work well under extreme variations in terrain. Shape file is supported. Find out more VirtualGrid ( will announce the availability of VRMesh v7.0 Survey at International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF) 2012. Visit us at Booth 95 (Jan 23rd – 25th, 2012, Denver) to learn about breakthrough technologies in point cloud classification for airborne and mobile LiDAR. Stop by Booth 95 at ILMF 2012 for a live demonstration.
