I want to call your attention to a recent article written by Ted Knaak at Certainty 3D that I decided to place on the LiDAR News website due to its length. Ted and I have been talking about the issues affecting the adoption of mobile laser scanning by transportation agencies.
In this article Ted relates a discussion that he had with the State Surveyor for the Florida Department of Transportation. The adoption of a disruptive technology like mobile laser scanning, in the final analysis will have more to do with organizational issues then it will the the hardware and software.
I think it is a valuable read.
