International Lidar Mapping Forum Announces 2020 Conference Program

Lineup features dozens of geospatial experts set to discuss pressing issues and emerging technologies in remote sensing

Washington DC, December 10, 2019 – The International Lidar Mapping Forum (ILMF) has released its 2020 conference program featuring a robust and diverse lineup of keynote presentations, case studies, and panel discussions lead by industry experts. This year marks the 20th anniversary of ILMF, the premier event for surveying and mapping technologies including airborne, mobile, and bathymetric lidar as well as other remote sensing technologies.

The 2020 conference, the first to take place in Washington, DC, will feature heavy representation from government organizations that employ surveying and mapping technologies. These presentations will explore topics such as national mapping programs, statewide projects, updates from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP). The program will also cover a wide array of specific areas of application such as topo-bathy mapping, forestry, indoor mapping, and much more.

“We’re excited for ILMF to be in Washington, DC, where the industry receives much of its support,” says Lisa Murray, Group Director at Diversified Communications. “Several federal government agencies drive the national lidar data policies, along with state and regional groups, so we’re thrilled to bring such an important industry gathering to the U.S. capitol region.”

Conference attendees will also hear from various speakers focusing on new and innovative applications for remote sensing technologies including presentations on the use of lidar in micromobility vehicles, and in Major League Baseball.The full program can be viewed here.

“The 2020 program reflects the dynamic nature of the lidar industry,” says Bill Emison, Conference Chair at Diversified Communications. “Traditional mapping solutions are now being augmented by innovative hardware and software solutions that allow for greater user access and functionality. As the lidar industry continues to evolve, we want to be at the forefront of this technical evolution.”

The 20th edition of International Lidar Mapping Forum (ILMF), produced by Diversified Communications, will be held from March 23-25 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. It will take place together with the ASPRS Annual Conference and the MAPPS Federal Programs Conference, as part of Geo Week. The conference is critical to anyone who needs to stay on top of the latest technology and developments in the rapidly changing geospatial technology market.
