ASPRS Columbia River & Puget Sound Regions

18th Annual Technical Exchange



This event is an informal opportunity for anyone who is interested in the topics of Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing, GIS and related technologies to learn more about what’s going on in our own region in resource management, government, academia and business.  The Information Exchange is a day-long event in which local practitioners present a 20 minute talk on one of their current or recent projects.  This is also an opportunity to learn new techniques, meet new contacts, and refresh old ones. Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Chris Parrish presenting:


“Lidar: Trends, Opportunities and Challenges in a Rapidly-Evolving Field”.


Dr. Parrish, who is the Director of the ASPRS Lidar Division, has recently been appointed as a professor of Geomatics at OSU, this will be a great opportunity to meet him and help him get plugged in to the regional remote sensing community, as well as an opportunity for us to hear cutting edge information about lidar technologies.


Anyone interested in learning more about Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing, GIS, UAS and related fields or wish to share information about interesting or unusual projects are welcome.  Please extend this invitation to your colleagues who would be interested in attending.  No commercial presentations or endorsements are allowed.
