Looking Back

Friday September 9, 2022

While we did have a get together in June for our outdoor picnic at the Gneiss Guy’s warehouse, this was our first regular meeting since 2020! It was good to get together, catchup with everyone after the summer months and look over all the goodies in the silent auction

May Meeting (via Zoom)

Our guest Speaker: Katelyn Corrigall-Millins

Presentation: Lidar: What you can do with Flying Machines and Laser Beams

Katelyn has 10 years of experience working in the GIS community- from archaeology and surveying, to her employment at ESRI Canada

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a remote sensing technology using
lasers to provide precision measurements and high-resolution imagery of objects. Katelyn’s presentation will explore how the LiDAR system works, platforms that it can be mounted on, and a variety of
applications in which it can be employed, including researching ancient ruins, exploring
modern day mining, examining geological formations, as well as miniscule changes in
engineered structures. LiDAR data can provide invaluable insight about our world.
