If you have ever attended the International Lidar Mapping Forum (ILMF) conference in person, you may be familiar with the highly popular “Product Preview” sessions held at each conference. These sessions give a rapid-fire introduction to new technology, updated software solutions and demonstrate the latest technology for your work. For 2020 we’ve moved them to a series of virtual sessions taking place as webinars.

These “Emerging Technology Showcases” feature up to six companies per session demonstrating their products or launching their new tech in short, 10-15-minute videos. This session, which took place on November 3, 2020 featured presentations from six companies:
