Fundamentals of Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS)
Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) is increasingly becoming a popular documentation tool for diverse industries, including forensic and crime scene investigation, accident reconstruction, facility management, surveying, architecture and civil engineering, archaeology, and others. This workshop is designed to introduce you to the fundamental principles of TLS and associated workflows. In the workshop, you will learn about a variety of TLS technologies and will become familiar with TLS project planning and execution through hands-on experience using the FARO Focus3D laser scanner. Workshop participants will complete a FARO Focus3D –based TLS project that includes 3D data collection, editing, and export and will have the opportunity to learn about a variety of 3D modeling software applications. By the end of the workshop, you will have working knowledge of TLS technologies and project workflows that will enable you to better understand TLS application possibilities and how they can used to meet your research or industry needs.

Upcoming workshop schedule: February 18-20, 2014, March 18-20, 2014, April 22-24, 2014

Introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) with ArcGIS 10.1
A Geographic Information System (GIS) is an important tool in the study, analysis, and visualization of spatial (geographic) data. This three-day workshop is designed to introduce you to the basic concepts and components of GIS as applied through ESRI ArcGIS 10.1 software. In this introductory workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of operating in ArcGIS 10.1 and obtain a basic understanding of various geospatial data types (vector, aerial imagery, geodatabases, etc.), cartographic principles, coordinate systems, projections, digitization, data querying, and other introductory geographic information. The workshop also will introduce to you the various sources of GIS data available for download on the internet, and how these data can be integrated into maps you create. By the end of the workshop, you will be familiar with the basics of map production in ArcGIS 10.1 using a variety of geospatial data types as well as be aware of some of the general principles of cartographic display.
