While we’ve been talking a lot on SPAR 3D lately about breaking down silos, the convergence of related technologies, and the broadening use cases of 3D technologies – the industry has been moving steadily to be inclusive of a variety of verticals, industries and more broadly accessible technologies.
In light of this, we are thrilled to announce the next evolution of SPAR 3D. Joining the International Lidar Mapping Forum and AEC Next Technology Expo & Conference, the three events are being united under one show: Geo Week.
Geo Week 2022 will take place February 6-8, 2022 in Denver, Colorado, and will bring together the best of 3D technology for the built world, geospatial applications, and more. The joining of these events reflects the increased integration between the built environment, advanced airborne/terrestrial technologies, and commercial 3D technologies. Geo Week is at the forefront of this integration, providing education, technology, and resources for professionals in industries including AEC, Asset & Facility Management, Disaster & Emergency Response, Earth Observation & Satellite Applications, Energy & Utilities, Infrastructure & Transportation, Land & Natural Resource Management, Mining & Aggregates, Surveying & Mapping, and Urban Planning/Smart Cities.
“We’ve witnessed the growing convergence between geospatial and the built world, and we received positive feedback from customers about holding the events together, which had been the plan for 2020 and 2021 before the pandemic forced us to cancel due to the unavoidable consequence of the worsening magnitude of the public health and safety issues caused by the COVID-19,” said Lee Corkhill, Marketing Director at Diversified Communications.
“We believe the market is ready and eager for this next step of leveraging the confluence of what are becoming ubiquitous technologies for improved collaboration, increased efficiency, and better outcomes. Much of the conference content and technology being showcased will reflect and support this increasing integration.”
This integration, however does not mean that SPAR 3D’s content will be abandoned or lessened. We will still be publishing articles highlighting the latest in 3D technology, and will use this opportunity to include new technologies and applications. We can’t wait to step into this next evolution.
