The community workshop Charting the Future of Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) in the Earth Sciences and Related Fields was held at the Millennium Harvest House Hotel in Boulder, Colorado on October 17-19, 2011.
See the meeting's presentations.
See the meeting's Workshop Report (Final).
Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS), a.k.a. terrestrial LiDAR, is part of a suite of new geodetic imaging technologies that are becoming increasingly important to the Earth science and related communities for use in myriad research applications. The overarching goals for this workshop are community oriented and include:
To advance these goals, the following thematic workshop sessions are planned:
We particularly seek to draw upon the experience and expertise of researchers who are familiar with the current capabilities and challenges of TLS technologies and methodologies and who are interested in advancing these goals. To help represent a broader target audience and to enrich and diversify the workshop's planning, content and deliverables, the Organizing Committee is recruiting community representatives to serve as additional organizing committee members and/or session chairs.
This workshop is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and organized by UNAVCO. Workshop deliverables are meant to be relevant to TLS users at all levels, from individual investigators to large scale initiatives, and will be particularly useful as strategic aids to help NSF supported facilities such as UNAVCO, INTERFACE, Open-Topography and NCALM best meet the needs of the research community now and in the future.
Posters are welcome.Workshop registration is now closed.
