A webinar has been scheduled for April 24, 2019 at 11 AM EDT, in which three (3) USGS representatives will deliver their presentations that had to be cancelled due to the recent federal government shutdown.

Since the USGS is such a critical component of the commercial lidar industry, ILMF believes that helping their representatives share regular program updates with the commercial community is important. These presentations will provide an update of the ongoing 3D Elevation Program (3DEP), the strategic data acquisition plan for 3DEP, and changes to the USGS Lidar Base Specification review and approval process.

The webinar will be include the following topics and speakers:
