MAPPS To Speak on Federal Issues at ILMF

Posted By Nick Palatiello, Wednesday, January 8, 2014

MAPPS is once again a supporting organization for the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF) to be held February 17-19, 2014 in Denver, CO. 

I will provide a briefing as part of the opening sessions on February 17 on "Regulatory and Budgetary Impacts – What is Happening at the Federal Level”. The briefing will provide an update on the Federal Aviation Administration’s regulation of LiDAR system installations and how MAPPS has worked on with the FAA to ease the burden on LiDAR operators. The presentation will also provide an overview of the current budgetary climate in Washington, DC, the status of the USGS’s 3-Dimentional Elevation Program (3DEP), and an overview of what can be expected in 2014 with the passage of a federal budget.

MAPPS members receive a 10% discount on their registration for the conference. Click here to register. The registration code for MAPPS members is 108315.

If you registered without receiving the discount, please contact me directly through email.
