It’s going to be quite a month for the 3D geospatial industries with CES next week, TRB the following, then the World of Concrete and Geo Week wraps up January 2019. WOW, that’s a lot of lidar and 3D laser scanning opportunities. I will be at the last two.
The time for procrastination is over. You may still find some low airfares, but not for much longer. Time to pull the trigger.
I have a colleague that is going to report on the presence of lidar and drones at CES in Vegas next week. That is no small chore, but this person has a ton of experience in high tech. I am predicting that lidar technology will be the stand out at CES 2019.
For TRB in Washington, D.C. the question is the impact of the senseless government shut down on attendance. What a shame given all of the work that has gone into this monster transportation conference. There is a lot of funding arrangements and business that is lined up at TRB.
The trip to the World of Concrete in Vegas is going to be a short one, but I will be involved in an all day meeting focused on the use of 3D laser scanning for measuring concrete tolerances. It’s by invitation only, but I am sure I will see some of you there. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the development of standards which will be supported by the American Concrete Institute.
Geo Week begins on Friday the 25th with the MAPPS 4 day winter meeting in Denver. The ASPRS annual meeting begins on Monday the 28th as does ILMF. There will be one exhibit area which should get a lot of traffic.
