Heerbrugg, Switzerland: Leica Geosystems announced the formal opening of registration for the 8th annual HDS Worldwide User Conference. It will be held during October 25-27, 2010, in San Ramon, California. The international conference will feature presentations by more than 30 leading users of its High-Definition Surveying (HDS) 3D laser scanners and software and by key Leica Geosystems staffs.
Registration is open for the main conference of presentations and exhibits, plus all nine training workshops. Workshop space is limited. Many workshops have sold out in the past, so prospective attendees are encouraged to register early for these popular workshops.
Although primarily intended for HDS users, the conference is also open to those looking for HDS service providers and to prospective users who want to conduct additional homework on how others are using these tools, such as the popular, new Leica ScanStation C10 scanner. Many members of the trade press are also planning to attend the conference. In total, more than 300 attendees from over 20 countries are expected for the 2010 conference.
New Forensic Track
Based on the very rapid adoption of laser scanning for capturing forensic scenes, the conference will feature for the first time a special Forensics Track and a special, all-day Forensics workshop on shooting trajectory reconstruction. This workshop will be taught by Mike Haag of the Albuquerque Police Department in cooperation with the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Department.
