Optech to Host Mapping in Motion Workshop at ASPRS 2010 in April

Toronto, Canada, April 5, 2010 – Optech Incorporated, the leading manufacturer of advanced lidar survey instruments, will host the Mapping in Motion workshop at the ASPRS 2010 Annual Conference. The workshop will be held in San Diego, CA, on April 27, 2010 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Optech has held successful user workshops at ASPRS for several years now. "The Optech ASPRS workshops are a great opportunity for industry professionals to keep abreast of the latest innovations in sensor hardware and software design," said Brent Gelhar, Optech’s Vice President, Sales and Strategy. "We have been extremely busy over the past year and have a lot of information to share. I am certain that every client will find something they can incorporate to maximize their collection and processing efficiencies. Whether it’s our latest ALTM™ sensor platform, our enhanced production software capabilities, or our new hardware toolsets, expect a very informative session this year."

This year’s Mapping in Motion workshop will include presentations and discussions on Optech’s latest hardware and software innovations in airborne and mobile mapping products. Dramatic advances in mobile mapping are turning the traditional surveying and engineering workflows upside down. Mobile terrestrial mapping works, and its value proposition is a compelling one. Optech will discuss strategies to manage large data sets, how to plan with Lynx software tools, and how to use surveying parameters to produce engineering-grade data.
