I wanted to highlight a couple of the on-line, laser scanning forums as these may not be all that well known, and they can provide a lot of valuable and timely information.
The first is a bulletin board found on CLICK, which was discussed in a previous blog. Although CLICK is mainly focused on the aerial mapping industry, there are sub-forums on terrestrial lidar and miscellaneous topics, which actually claims the most posts.
The second is The Laser Scanning Forum. Based in the UK, this forum is focused on discussions of the technology. It seems to be generating a good level of interest and it appears to be well organized.
The final is 3Dlaserscanning.org . Since March of 2004 this site has had almost a million page views.
Please let me know if you are aware of other forums.
