Innovate with Modern Imaging and Mapping

At this unique forum, you’ll get a close look at capture and mapping technologies using imaging, Lidar, 3D, and multidimensional analysis and modeling to solve organizational challenges. Multidimensional GIS and mapping technology has a unique ability to communicate—in 3D and n-dimensional space—natural and man-made features for better analysis. Discover new innovations that enhance use of big data and take advantage of the opportunity to share, learn, and network with Industry thought leaders. Then head back to the office with ideas that will improve workflows, collaboration, and decision making.

Why Attend? Learn how to…

  • Manage massive collections of Lidar, Imagery, and 3D data
  • Integrate Lidar, Imagery, and 3D into your data production and advanced design processes
  • Reduce data duplication and manage your multidimensional information efficiently
  • Automate manual tasks and save time by working with the ArcGIS platform
  • Visualize and analyze large surface and point cloud data sets
  • Quickly share your 3D products using web services
  • Manage, produce, and share UAS (drone) imagery and Lidar
  • Work with true data fusion from land, sea, and airborne collection systems


Multi-dimensional GIS provides a horizontal platform for geospatial professionals at all levels of experience working in a number of industries including urban planning, national mapping, installation environments, design, defense, business, utilities, and scientific research.


The forum will be held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California.


With the increased ability of sensing devices to collect rich multi-dimensional datasets, it is important that those involved in this advanced field stay current with the latest techniques in 3D imaging, rendering, multi-dimensional analysis, and visualization.
