OpenTopography at 2011 AGU Fall Meeting

Nov 29, 2011

As is the tradition, OpenTopography will be active at the upcoming American Geophysical Union fall meeting, December 5-9, 2011 in San Francisco. As we've done in the past, we'll have a booth in the exhibit hall and several scientific presentations that highlight the OpenTopography system and related research and development work.

Exhibit Hall
OpenTopography / NCALM Booth: This year we'll be sharing a double booth with our colleagues from the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping, who are funded by NSF to collect airborne lidar data. With a shared booth, there will be one stop to learn about NSF-related lidar topography activities. The booth is on "NSF Street", #1123. Come by to see demos of OpenTopography, learn about available data, ask questions, or just say hi.

UNAVCO Booth: As collaborators on the NASA Lidar Access System (NLAS) project, and the lead for the NSF Plate Boundary Observatory, look for OpenTopography lidar system demos and NLAS demos at the UNAVCO booth throughout the week.
