Extra LiDAR workshops added to ForestTECH 2017

In Event, Issue08 by FIEA

In conjunction with the ForestTECH 2017 series this year, Interpine will be running their own introductory workshop for ForestTECH delegates the day after each event – Friday 17 November, Rotorua and in Melbourne, Thursday 23 November.

They’re designed to teach local forestry companies on how to manipulate, process and visualize LiDAR datasets, with a specific focus on forestry derived outputs. These include terrain and vegetation surfaces and vegetation related metrics.

In New Zealand, the practical course includes hands-on labs and presentations and will be held at the computer facility at Toi Ohomai in Rotorua, just down the road from the ForestTECH 2017 venue. In Australia, participants will bring along their own computers. The workshop will be run at the ForestTECH 2017 conference venue in Melbourne.

Presenters include Interpine team members and Dr. Martin Isenburg, a presenter at the ForestTECH series. Dr. Isenburg is an independent scientist, lecturer, and research consultant who has created a popular suite of LiDAR processing software modules called LAStools that is the flagship product of rapidlasso GmbH, Germany.

Further details are available on the ForestTECH 2017 programme and conference registrations can be made on the event website, www.foresttech.events.

Information and registrations for the additional workshops in both countries can be made at here. Note, for the workshops, numbers will be limited so if wanting to secure a space, it would be wise to register early.
