ForestTech 2017 Workshop: Forestry Orientated LiDAR Analysis

In conjunction with the ForestTECH 2017 series this year, Interpine will be running a LiDAR Analysis workshop the day after each event – Friday 17 November, Rotorua and in Melbourne, Thursday 23 November. It will teach delegates how to manipulate, process and visualize LiDAR datasets, with a specific focus on forestry derived forestry outputs. These include terrain, vegetation surfaces and forest yield related metrics.

In New Zealand, the course includes hands-on labs and presentations and will be held at the computer facility at Toi Ohomai in Rotorua.
In Australia, participants will bring along their own computers. The workshop will be run at the ForestTECH 2017 conference venue in Melbourne.
Dr. Martin Isenburg (rapidlasso LAStools developer) and the Interpine Team (David Herries, Susana Gonzalez and Sarah Pitcher-Campbell).
