Morning Workshops


Mobile LiDAR " That's really cool but how do I use it?": $30

Instructors:

Bartley Estes – CEC LiDAR Manager
Greg Hakman – CEC GIS Manager
Rusty Steel – CEC Technology Manager

Course Description:

When it comes to acquiring any kind of geospatial data, it always boils down to using the right tool in the toolbox. Mobile LiDAR is a relatively new remote sensing technology that has enhanced the way we acquire, process, and produce actionable geospatial data. However, to fully leverage the power of 3D laser scan data, it is important to understand the geomatic principles that determine data accuracies, precision, and usability.

 This workshop will be an in-depth look into mobile LiDAR data acquisition, data processing techniques, and applications. These applications will include utilizing 3D laser scan data for topographic surveying, 3D modeling, pavement condition analysis, and asset management.  We will also discuss ways to utilize this data in GIS platforms like ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Desktop utilizing the 3D Analyst extension, as well as examples of LAS files used in GIS software.  We will talk through a complete project lifecycle, from mobile LiDAR data acquisition to producing an end deliverable.

 The most common question we’ve had over the years is “That’s really cool, but how do I use it?”. In this workshop, it is our goal to answer that question.

Elements of a Map: $30

Instructor:  Carrie Landgraf, GISP - Garver

For many of us in the GIS profession, making maps is an expected part of the job. While data creation and analysis are crucial parts of our maps, the maps themselves are the liaison between data crunchers and a much larger audience. This workshop focuses on important elements of a map – from choosing the right projection to scale bars and multiple data frames.

While this Workshop is lecture-based, attendees are encouraged to share ideas and participate in discussions. In addition, attendees may bring their own laptops to enrich the experience.
