From 11 to 13 November 2013, SPAR Europe and European LiDAR Mapping Forum (ELMF) took place together for the first time, offering professionals in the fields of geospatial mapping, GIS and multi-dimensional imaging an unrivalled opportunity to gain knowledge, learn best practices, discover new technologies and network with each other.
ELMF sessions focused on the use of LiDAR to support transport, urban modeling, coastal zone mapping, utility asset management, 3D visualisation and GIS applications for a wide range of industries from government departments to commercial mapping enterprises. Sessions at SPAR Europe focused on educating engineers, surveyors, architects, builders and others on the latest 3D measurement and imaging tools and technologies for industries including process and power, building and architecture, civil infrastructure and transportation, forensics and security, and digital cultural preservation. The exhibit floor had 64 booths showcasing the newest hardware and software solutions on the market.
The single European venue provided an opportunity for newcomers and seasoned experts to learn about the latest advances in LiDAR and 3D measurement technologies and hear how more and more industries are using advanced tools to improve how the world is mapped and measured. More than 90 industry experts spoke about data capture systems, data fusion/classification and processing techniques and the increasing integration of key technologies.
