Pre-conference workshops, such as Aerometrex’s UAV mapping, are going to be a treat for a number of commissions, including Engineering & Mining and Remote Sensing.

Airborne and bathymetric LiDAR is a major area of development – adjustments of broad area airborne surveying, developments in mobile mapping and the use of 3D Data.  See case studies and research from USQ, Curtin University. AAM and DigitalGlobe.

Sessions not to be missed include

  • Object-based Image Analysis by Xiaoye Liu, USQ;
  • Evolution & Revolution of Satellites by Kumar Navulur, Digital Globe;
  • 3D Spatial by Data Glenn Jones, NSW LPI;
  • LiDAR in surveying lunar-like surface, AAM;
  • Evaluation btn UAV, LiDAR & Terrestrial Scanner, Xiaoye Liu, USQ;
  • Digital Evaluation Model, Abhineet Jain, DigitalGlobe; and
  • Big Data LiDAR, from Esri Australia.

These are just a small selection of the topics on offer at the conference; a full overview is available on the SSSC 2013 website.
