Esri 3D Mapping Lab

The Esri 3D GIS Mapping Lab will introduce users to modern workflows for managing, producing, and sharing of 3D information via an enterprise and cloud architecture. 

Participants will learn how GIS workflows can extend 2D data into 3D and incorporate remote sensing Lidar and Imagery.  All of these sources of information will be used to create high-resolution urban environments for further use in accurate 3D visualization and analysis.

Attendees will learn how to disseminate 3D information online via ArcGIS webscenes and ArcGIS online.

Wednesday September 18, 2013 9:00am - 12:00pm


Esri LiDAR Lab

The Esri Lidar Lab will cover managing and using Lidar point cloud data with ArcGIS 10.1.  By attending this session, GIS users will be able to learn how to manage Lidar data, use ArcGIS for 2D/3D visualization and analysis, as well as share their Lidar data through webservices. 

Attendees will learn a complete Lidar data management strategy, including: how to catalog their data; when to use LAS Datasets, terrain Datasets, and Mosaic Datasets; what analytical options are available for Lidar; how to fuse Lidar data with other spatial and operational layers; and techniques for making Lidar data more accessible.  

By utilizing the ArcGIS platform, organizations will be better able to support informed decision making by providing simple and timely access to your Lidar and Imagery.
