New England Section ACSM Presents Emerging Technologies in Surveying & Mapping Seminar October 15, 2011
The New England Section ACSM invites you to an Emerging Technologies in Surveying & Mapping Seminar presented by Claire Kiedrowski, ASPRS Certified Photo-grammetrist and President of KAPPA Mapping, Inc. located in Bangor, Maine.
This Emerging Technologies in Surveying & Mapping Seminar will be held on Saturday October 15, 2011, Noon to 4 pm, University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH. The seminar details, cost, and link to the registration form are found at the end of this announcement.
Emerging Technologies in Surveying & Mapping Seminar Overview
This is an intermediate workshop, providing an overview of the emerging technologies that impact the surveying and mapping profession. The advance towards full digital mapping from start to finish, and the capacity to capture very large amounts of data supported by rapid processing and software will alter the way maps are produced in the near future.
At the same time, active sensors, hand-held data collection devices, and feature extraction are changing fundamental mapping procedures and the way data is supplied to GIS. Participants will receive an overview of the systems, technologies, and impacts on mapping in the next 2-3 years.
