2018 Convention – New Friday Seminars!

Seminars for the 50th Annual Convention are filling up fast! We’re pleased to announce that there are two new seminars that will be offered at the Convention on Friday, February 23!

The Reality of Reality Capture
Presented by James Shaw and Jonathan Austin
8 AM – 12 PM

This workshop will be a broad overview of reality capture techniques (laser scanning, aerial drones, mobile lidar, terrestrial photogrammetry), the costs of these techniques, the challenges of using the techniques, the accuracy and limitations of these techniques, markets that can be serviced, and possibly some live demonstration of the techniques.

Profiting from Point Clouds
Presented by James Shaw and Jonathan Austin
1:15 PM – 5:15 PM

You do not have to own a laser scanner to benefit from point clouds. Just having the point cloud data can lead to better planning, better engineering, and better quality control – saving you and your client from costly mistakes. Just as important, you can provide profitable services extracting features and surfaces to better serve your existing markets or to pursue entirely new ones. Through a series of live demonstrations, you will learn to: acquire freely available LiDAR data and perform a site analysis; create a surface model from aerial LiDAR data; extract CAD or GIS features from terrestrial or mobile LiDAR; use photographic data from a sUAS to create 3D models and to perform stockpile calculations; and, combine various data sources to create a complete topographic model.

If you’d like to register for one or both of these seminars but have already registered for the Convention, you may email the WVSPS office at wvsps@wvsps.org for assistance. You can also change your registration online at www.wvspsconvention.org, selecting “Already Registered?” at the top of the page, and entering your email address and confirmation number.

We look forward to seeing you in Flatwoods!
