Ex­tra Li­DAR work­shops added to ForestTECH 2017

Australian Forests and Timber - - Foresttech 17 -

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.

Num­bers for the work­shops will be lim­ited so it would be wise to reg­is­ter early.
