The success of ILMF 2014, which saw more than 800 professional attendees from 27 countries, proved once again that LiDAR, in its increasing variety of operational formats either alone or when complementing other technologies, is becoming the technology of choice for fast, accurate and quality geospatial data acquisition. Whether supporting highly detailed 3D urban mapping projects, forestry management, or railroad and power transmission line maintenance programs, LiDAR technology delivers the results needed by today’s demanding geospatial and mapping professionals.
