Review of Leica Geosystems HDS 2009 User Conference by Tom Gibson

Editor for Professional Surveyor magazine
This editorial review notes that the 2009 annual conference reinforced the fact that "laser scanning is opening new business opportunities and allowing many organizations to survive and even thrive in today's economy." Gibson summarizes many presentations, including ones on scanning cell towers for asset management; scanning historic ships for archive and tourist promotion; technical insights into the new Leica ScanStation C10 laser scanner; university research on automated feature extraction from point clouds; 3D laser scanning of Istanbul for better city planning; daily use of a Leica Geosystems HDS laser scanner by a 2-person survey business in England; and, a Florida firm's increasing emphasis on scanning for surveying & mapping.
