he International LiDAR Mapping Forum opens in just over 3 weeks time
The ILMF team are busy preparing for the International LiDAR Mapping Forum which is being held in Denver, Colorado on February 11-13, 2013.
Boasting an action-packed conference program of over 30 carefully selected technical papers presented by LIDAR experts from across the world. The conference will place delegates one step ahead with knowledge of up-to-the-minute research and commercial developments.
Running alongside the conference is an international exhibition of over 70 leading technology, software and service providers from 17 different countries. ILMF also offers onsite mobile mapping vehicles and a whole host of Basics to LIDAR workshops, providing an understanding of the basic principles and benefits of LIDAR.
We look forward to welcoming you to Denver.
We are delighted to announce that Lawrie Jordan, Director of Imagery at Esri and Special Assistant to Jack Dangermond, President of Esri, will be giving this year’s keynote presentation at the European LiDAR Mapping Forum, which is taking place in Salzburg in December 2012.
Mr Jordan’s keynote speech will provide a vision for the fast-paced LIDAR industry. Focusing on how organisations can take their remotely sensed data to create intelligent 3D images for use in the cloud and augmented reality, his presentation will address the challenges facing the industry as well as potential GIS solutions.
For full details about Lawrie Jordan’s keynote presentation including an abstract, please visit http://www.lidarmap.org/ELMF/conference/keynote.aspx
The European LiDAR Mapping Forum is taking place in Salzburg, Austria 4-5 December 2012, highlights include:
The highly acclaimed international conference offers an opportunity to learn about the latest advances in technology and hear about industry changes and developments first hand from industry experts. Find out more about data capture systems, data fusion/classification and processing techniques and the increasing integration of key technologies. Listen to case studies highlighting actual experiences and lessons learnt.
Running alongside the conference is an exhibition of 50 system and component manufacturers, operators and service companies expected to demonstrate new LIDAR products and a wide range of new technologies and services. Exhibitors include airborne, terrestrial and bathymetric LIDAR, and complementary sensor manufacturers, survey service companies, data processing, GIS and management specialists and the latest mobile mapping vehicles.
Delegates are able to attend our commercial workshop series presented by industry manufacturers aimed at providing novice operators, project and asset managers and potential purchasers of equipment with an understanding of the basic principles and fundamental benefits associated with LIDAR. These workshops are hosted by exhibiting companies and held alongside the ELMF conference. Delegates that are registered for the conference are able to attend free of charge.
Advanced Short Intensive Programme
ELMF is supporting an Advanced Short Intensive Programme that is organised and hosted by the University of Salzburg Department of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS and is being held from 30 November – 5 December. The course is catering to graduate students, young researchers and junior staff with a focus on research, development and applications involving LIDAR technologies and applications. The first three days being held at the University and the remaining days onsite at ELMF.
Mobile Mapping Vehicles
Mobile Mapping Vehicles will be parked directly outside the front of the centre providing easy access for all visitors wishing to view the latest technological developments in mobile mapping.
Early Bird Booking Rate
To take advantage of the Early Bird Booking Rate please register by the 10th of October 2012.
We look forward to welcoming you to Salzburg.

INTERNATIONAL LiDAR MAPPING FORUM LAUNCH
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Technical Committee for the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF), which is taking place in Denver, USA, February 11-13, 2013, has announced a Call for Papers and invites any interested parties to submit their abstracts by September 28, 2012 online at https://secure.smartregister.co.uk/events/Intelligent-Exhibitions/2013/ILMF-CFP/start.aspx.
The ILMF Technical Committee, led by Conference Chairman Alastair MacDonald from TMSI, will peer review each abstract and the final program will be announced in November.
ILMF set a new record for attendees in January 2012, when 773 professionals from 29 different countries turned up in droves for the 12th annual event. This 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.
Conference Chairman, Alastair MacDonald of TMS International, comments: “The quality of the papers presented at ILMF2012 was outstanding. The highly positive reaction to the topics from the delegates, which included many newcomers as end-users of LiDAR data, showed how important and relevant the chosen subjects were to the fast growing LiDAR community.” For a full list of topics, please go to http://www.lidarmap.org/conference/Default.aspx.
Running alongside the conference will once again be the exhibition of more than 50 leading companies expected to demonstrate new LiDAR products and a wide range of new technologies and services. The ILMF welcomes organizations involved in Airborne and Bathymetric LiDAR and Mobile Mapping Systems, including system and component manufacturers, operators, service companies and specialists in data processing, handling and management, to exhibit or sponsor at the ILMF event. Adam Hill from Blue Marble Geographics commented after the last event, “Bottom line – the ILMF has become and will continue to be the premier LiDAR conference event that all organizations in this industry must attend.” For the exhibitor list and more information about exhibiting, please go to http://www.lidarmap.org/exhibition/Default.aspx.
The organizers of the International LiDAR Mapping Forum also organize the European conference that is now in its 3rd year. Based upon the successful 12 year track record of the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF), coupled with the growing acceptance in Europe of the benefits of LiDAR in low-cost mapping, the European LiDAR Mapping Forum (ELMF) was born. http://www.lidarmap.org/ELMF/.

About the LiDAR Mapping Forums: The International and European LiDAR Mapping Forums are the premier global events focused on applying the technology of LiDAR and laser scanning to deliver outside mapping and imaging solutions in a timely and cost-effective manner across a variety of markets. The core component of both events is the conference which introduces the latest concepts from commercial or academic research, leading edge innovations in technologies, improved operating practices, reports on actual project experiences and discusses new applications and markets being driven by the rapid improvements in LiDAR technology. During the conference the programme will focus on the use of LiDAR to support transport, urban modelling, coastal zone mapping, asset management and GIS applications. An international exhibition runs alongside the conferences with exhibitors involved in airborne, bathymetric and terrestrial LiDAR and mobile mapping systems, including system and component manufacturers, operators and service companies.
