Geov8 2015 Virtual Expo Welcome & Introduction

Time: 10am-10:15am


Innovative Surveying & Mapping Geospatial Technology Integrations

Time: 10:15am-11:00am

  • Presenter: Eric ColburnColburn Strategic Partners
  • Summary: The latest technological advances in close-range photogrammetry technologies.
  • Topic Tags: Photogrammetry, Land Surveying, Workflow Optimization

Innovations in Integrated UAV Mobile Mapping Technologies

Time: 11:00am-12:00pm

  • Presenter: Andy TrenchXactSense
  • Summary: Overview of turnkey UAV aircraft, geospatial scanning, and sensor integration including innovative GPS-free UAV surveying platform gained XactSense national recognition as robotics and disruptive technology innovators in a rapidly growing market

 Will Photogrammetry Make Laser Scanning Obsolete?

Time: 12:00pm-1:00pm

  • Presenter: David BoardmanStockpile Reports
  • Summary: This presentation will illustrate how reality indexing and photogrammetry is solving major business challenges on and offsite. David Boardman’s discussion and demonstration will cover current 3D computer generation, customer-use cases for profit and non-profit, future applications, large-scale measurements, and how photogrammetry is currently contributing to inventory measurement solutions in the construction, mining and aggregates industry.
  • Topic Tags: Photogrammetry, Laser Scanning, 3D Computer Generation

Think Global, Act Hyperlocal: Why Proximity is King

Time: 1:00pm-2:00pm

  • Presenter: Sameer Babbar, Zapiator
  • Summary: This presentation will illustrate how big-data and analytics is solving business challenges that were previously too hard, or too expensive to solve. The presentation will cover how users analyze and make local decisions by gathering local information and integrating their own data with ease using the Zapiator platform.
  • Topic Tags: GIS, Geography, Big Data, Location Analysis

 A Scalable Approach to Point Cloud Processing

Time: 2:00pm-3:00pm

  • Presenter: Sravan PuttaguntaCivil Maps
  • Summary: Civil Maps is a search engine for point cloud data. It has the capability to scan the digital representation of the physical world and index objects of interest. In addition, it has the capacity to study the relationships between assets as well. Utilizing deep learning it is now possible to create self assembling asset descriptors that are useful to process terabytes of point cloud data. During this talk we will go over the deep learning process and educate potential beta users on how to contribute to a self learning platform.
  • Topic Tags: Laser Scanning, 3D Machine Control, CAD/Design/BIM

What is OPUS Projects?

Time: 3:00pm-4:00pm

  • Presenter: Daniel Martin, NOAA/NOS/National Geodetic Survey
  • Summary: This is a presentation on OPUS Projects, a web-based GPS processing and network adjustment package with access to simple visualization, management, and processing tools for multiple marks and multiple occupations.
  • Topic Tags: GNSS, GPS, Land surveying, Geodetic Networks

 AutoCAD Civil3D Surveyor Survival Strategies

Time: 4:00pm-5:00pm

  • Presenter: Eric ColburnColburn Strategic Partners
  • Summary: This presentation describes the planning process, shows basic setup procedures, highlights critical settings so you know your work is correct and success strategies working with AutoCAD Civil 3D. In addition to the mechanics of AutoCAD Civil 3D, like Styles, Labels Styles, Survey Databases and Description Key Sets, Eric Colburn’s presentation covers advanced uses including GIS, Point Clouds, visualizations and marketing.
