River Analytics Symposium

Quantum Spatial River Analytics Symposium

-Russ Faux, Sr VP

Quantum Spatial successfully hosted its first River Analytics Symposium at our Corvallis, Oregon office on October 29th.  The Symposium explored a range of salient topics ranging from river restoration, quantified conservation, habitat analysis, and the application of advanced remote sensing technologies such as topobathymetric lidar and thermal infrared imagery. The Symposium had over 80 attendees that represented a diverse background of expertise from Federal and State Agencies to Tribes, NGO’s, Universities, and engineering firms.  The Symposium concluded with an engaging look at how high resolution spatial data are being used to support planning for the Klamath River dam removal project.

Quantum Spatial would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the presenters and participants for a great Symposium.   Click the links below to access the symposium presentations.
