Page 18-21: The reconstruction of building outlines provides useful input for land information systems. In the city of Kalochori in northern Greece, a mixed commercial and residential area of 33 hectares was selected as a test area to evaluate the classification of buildings. Two data sources were available: airborne Lidar and aerial photographs.
Page 23-25: Technological monuments are vulnerable to decay. 3D modelling and documentation are essential to avoid them falling into irreparable decline and to enable future restoration. Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) is a proven technology for capturing complex objects.
Page 14-17: Benoît St-Onge is a professor at the University of Quebec in Montreal, Canada. He works at the Department of Geography with a major research interest in 3D remote sensing for forest analysis. GIM International recently interviewed Professor St-Onge to gain a better understanding of the challenges and innovations in this field.
Page 34-35: The UK’s largest geospatial event, GEO Business, has seen another successful year in 2016. Bringing together over 200 of the world’s leading suppliers of geospatial technology and service providers and offering a thought-provoking conference programme, the show held recently in London provided a comprehensive insight into what is an exciting and progressive industry.
