Toronto, Canada, February 10, 2014 — Optech, the world leader in high-accuracy lidar 3D survey systems and productivity-enhancing workflow software, is pleased to announce that it will be attending the International LiDAR Mapping Forum 2014 as both a presenter and exhibitor. Held on February 17-19, 2014 in Denver, CO, the forum examines the use of lidar in applications such as transportation, urban modeling, coastal zone mapping, utility asset management, 3D visualization, and GIS.
During the Coastal Zone & Bathymetric Lidar session, Optech Software Development Manager Dr. Jong Yoong Park will present his team’s latest developments in waveform analysis techniques for separating the water surface and seafloor using Optech’s industry-leading CZMIL Coastal Zone Mapping and Imaging Lidar. These techniques extract depth and bottom features to the seafloor from the water surface even in the shallow and highly turbid waters that give traditional algorithms trouble, opening up new areas for surveying with airborne bathymetric lidar. Visitors with an interest in bathymetry can catch this presentation at 4:30 p.m. on February 17 in the Centennial Ballroom (F, G, H).
In the exhibit hall, Optech will be showcasing the Lynx Mobile Mapper™ as a fast and extremely safe way to collect 3D detail of corridors such as roads, distribution lines, railways and waterways. The vehicle-mounted lidar and integrated 360° camera systems leverage the high productivity Optech LMS workflows to efficiently deliver engineering-grade data with the highest accuracy and productivity commercially available, and are ideal for safely modeling infrastructure in 3D while minimizing “boots on the ground”.
Optech’s airborne lidar and integrated camera systems, designed for applications from corridor surveys to wide-area mapping, will also be on display. These flexible and easy-to-install sensors boost efficiency, and their automated LMS processing workflows provide consistently accurate results while maximizing productivity with minimal training.
Finally, the Optech ILRIS Terrestrial Laser Scanner is well known for capturing extreme detail of complex infrastructure with high accuracy and from safe ranges. Visitors will learn about its new remote control, enhanced workflow efficiency, and automated monitoring capabilities.
Visitors with questions about these advances are welcome to stop by Booth 83 and ask how Optech can help them fulfill their specific application needs.
Optech is the world leader in high-accuracy lidar 3D survey systems, integrated cameras, and productivity-enhancing workflows. With operations and staff worldwide, Optech offers both standalone and fully integrated lidar and camera solutions in airborne mapping, airborne lidar bathymetry, mobile mapping, terrestrial laser scanning, mine cavity monitoring, and industrial process control, as well as space-proven sensors. Accuracy and productivity matter!
