Mr. Flood is Vice President, Special Projects for GeoCue Group, a company dedicated to creating hardware and software tools for improving geospatial data production. In this role, Martin provides technical expertise and business case analysis for GeoCue’s payload development group. He also works with customers to optimize and scale their data processing workflows when working with new sensor technologies such as lidar. His primary interest is achieving the highest-accuracy results from lightweight, compact lidar sensors using relatively low-cost technology, with the goal to make lidar technology as widely accessible as possible to the survey and mapping community. Martin is also Product Manager for LP360, GeoCue’s point cloud processing and analysis software suite. As Product Manager, Martin works directly with LP360 users to enhance the capabilities and tools in LP360 for efficient, scalable point cloud and imagery processing. Martin began his career in 1991 working on lidar sensor hardware development at Optech, Inc. and was involved in the development of the first commercial airborne lidar terrain mapping systems released by Optech in 1995. He is a past chair of the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Lidar Technical Committee and currently serves on the Geo Week Advisory Board. Martin received his undergraduate degree from the University of Waterloo and his M.Sc. in Physics from the University of Western Ontario. He has over 30 years’ experience in the design and construction of advanced laser systems for remote sensing applications and optimizing data processing workflows to improve production efficiency.
