Good people – If you are around Atlanta in on the 19th of January 2017 show up. My plan is to make a quick jump down.
LIDAR is a hot topic in Georgia these days. So – for the January 2016 Luncheon more LIDAR.
“LIDAR Updates – Changes in the Technology and Coverage”
Speaker Name: Ernie Smith
Presentation Summary: Like all Technology LiDAR has become very dynamic with new sensors and available data. We will talk about the advancements and availability of Sensors, Standards, and Data sets. There are many changes in the technology and unless you are working with it everyday, it’s difficult to keep up with all of the advancements.
Standards are also changing due to the sensor technology advancement which means practices and applications for LiDAR are growing. Also drones are being used for data collection and there are some things to be aware of for that use of Technology. We will present a map that gives our best understanding of where LiDAR data exists in Georgia as well.

Torched Hop Brewing
249 Ponce de Leon Ave. NE, Atlanta, GA
By late July, I hope everyone will be adequately adjusted to the heat and allergies, and finally recovered from the Esri UC, if you were lucky enough to attend. To kick off summer, MAGS will return to Midtown on 7/21, to enjoy the setting of the new Torched Hop brewpub on Ponce.
Torched Hop is in the former Old Spaghetti Factory space, a 5-block walk or ride east from the North Avenue MARTA station (and a block west of Krispy Kreme). If you drive, there’s a fair amount of street parking in the vicinity, as well as free parking in the Camden Apartments garage behind Torched Hop.
