OpenTopography will be at the Arizona Geographic Information Council (AGIC) Education and Training Symposium in Prescott, AZ this week. Be sure to stop by the OpenTopography booth to say hello and learn more about about the topography data access and services that OpenTopography provides!
As part of this year's AGIC meeting, OpenTopography will be running a half day short course, "Intro to Lidar, Data Access, and Processing with OpenTopography" on Wednesday, August. 31 at 1:30 pm MST. (Capacity currently full, waitlist available.) This hands-on session will provide an introduction to airborne lidar technology and how to use OpenTopography to process and examine different attributes of point clouds, construct raster DEMs, and perform topographic differencing on multi-temporal datasets to examine landscape change.
