Comparisons of  3D measurement capture methods and practices from LiDAR and laser scanning to short-range and consumer 3D measurement including:

  • Laser scanning
  • LiDAR – airborne and terrestrial
  • Photogrammetry
  • Mobile Surveying & Mapping
  • Bathymetry and underwater measurement
  • Short-range measurement
  • Kinect, Shapeshot and other structured-light applications
  • UAV’s
  • Indoor mobile mapping and kinematic scanning


Data processing and workflow considerations for 3D measurement including:

  • Working with point clouds, including feature extraction
  • Straight-to-model in practice
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM)
  • Kinematic scanning using Simultaneous Location and Mapping (SLAM) algorithms
  • Facility design considerations
  • Dimensional control for fabrication and modular construction
  • Workflow considerations
  • Integrating disparate systems
  • Data standardization
  • Data fusion

Visualization and deliverables of 3D measurements including:

The combined SPAR Europe/ELMF Advisory Board, together with SPAR Point Group, will review submitted abstracts and announce the final program in early September. For more information, visit the  Call for Presenters page.

 

This is the fourth edition for both events, which were launched in 2010 following the success of their U.S. counterparts, SPAR International and International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF).  ILMF and ELMF were recently purchased by Diversified Business Communications, owner of SPAR Point Group. “Holding the European events together gives customers the full spectrum of data capture, processing and delivery at one time,” said Lisa Murray, Director of SPAR Point Group. “For one registration fee, attendees can attend both events and have their choice of education.”
