Organizers of the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF), taking place February 17-19, 2014 in Denver, are delighted to announce that Dr. Michael Hauck, the new Executive Director of ASPRS, will be speaking at ILMF 2014.  “We’re thrilled to have Dr. Hauck address the ILMF audience at the 11th annual ILMF,” said Lisa Murray, Director of International LiDAR Mapping Forum. “ASPRS plays a vital role in the LiDAR industry as it is the key organization that sets data format and accuracy standards for kinematic laser scanning and we are grateful for its support of ILMF.”

In his address, “From Galileo to Radiohead and Beyond,” Dr. Hauck will discuss the future of imaging and geospatial information, giving a nod to Galileo’s telescope and the British rock group Radiohead’s use of LiDAR technology to produce its Grammy-nominated “House of Cards.”  “I'll make some predictions which, in 5-10 years, attendees may be able to look back upon and say with pride that they were part of the team that made them happen, and that they got the idea at ILMF,” said Dr. Hauck.

A full morning is dedicated to ASPRS on Monday, February 17.  Admission to the ‘Hot Topics’ sessions is included with International LiDAR Mapping Forum conference registration.   

Full information on ASPRS ‘Hot Topics’ programming can be found here.
