The organisers of International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF), the world’s leading technical conference and expo covering the newest airborne, terrestrial and underwater LiDAR as well as emerging remote-sensing and data collection tools and technologies, have announced the 2018 conference programme.

The 18th annual edition of ILMF will take place alongside the ASPRS Annual Conference 5 – 7 February, 2018 in Denver, Colorado.

The main ILMF conference programme includes these featured presentations:


  • Adam LeWinter of USACE-CRREL on Unmanned Aerial Systems for High Resolution Laser Scanning Applications.
  • Stefan Hrabar of CSIRO on Mapping of Underground Mines with an Autonomous Drone. 
  • Iain Woodhouse of Carbomap on Fixed-Wing UAV with LiDAR, Hyperspectral Imaging and Real-Time Processing.
  • Dr. Julien Vallett of Helimap Systems on What you Can Expect from UAV Mapping.

Data acquisition

  • Chris Hopkinson of University of Lethbridge on Mapping of Soil Depth Following Wildfire using Multi-Spectral and Multi-Temporal LiDAR.
  • Amar Nayegandhi of Dewberry on Multi-Sensor Topo-Bathymetric Approach to Mapping the Everglades National Park.
  • Charles Write of NOAA on Using LiDAR, Manned Aircraft SfM, and UAS SfM for Coastal Mapping.

Project case studies

  • Martin Flood of GeoCue on Updating Legacy LiDAR Projects at USDA: Benefits, Challenges and Lessons Learned.
  • Michael Meiser of Woolpert on the Use of LiDAR in Platinum-Group Element Mining at the Stillwater Complex, MT.
  • Al Karlin of SWFWMD on High-Density LiDAR to Meet Southwest Florida Water Management District’s Specifications for Diverse Applications in Florida.
Other topics include:
  • Advanced Geo-Technologies.
  • Advanced LiDAR Topics.
  • Bathymetric LiDAR.
