The Global Mapper workshop will provide an opportunity for AAG delegates to learn about some of the latest developments that have been integrated into the Global Mapper software platform, including the recently released LiDAR Module. Using real-world scenarios, attendees will see how Global Mapper can be used to import, edit, filter, and crop LiDAR point cloud data. The workshop will also include instruction on the process for transforming LiDAR data into a terrain model and will showcase several examples of the analysis tools that can be applied to this 3D data.
