Quantum Spatial, Inc. the nation’s largest independent geospatial data firm, will showcase its industry-leading use of topographic-bathymetric (topo-bathy) LiDAR and advanced analytics to support natural resource managment by public agencies in presentations and exhibits at the Coastal GeoTools conference next week.
Join our experts at GeoTools in North Charleston Feb 6 – Feb 9 at booth #17 to learn more about how Quantum Spatial can support your natural resource management needs.
Throughout the conference, members of the Quantum Spatial team will present papers and lead special sessions, including:
Performance of the Riegl VQ-880-G LiDAR Sensor in Mapping Coastal Near-Shore Bathymetry Quantum Spatial’s Russ Faux, senior vice president; Nick Kules, technical specialist; and Colin Cooper, senior scientist; will share how topo-bathy LiDAR can be used for mapping near-shore and intertidal zones, providing valuable data for inundation modeling, habitat mapping and other coastal zone management applications.
Small UAS-based LiDAR Acquisition and Processing Considerations for Natural Resource Management – Led by Quantum Spatial’s Faux, Kules and Steve Raber, senior program manager, this presentation will contrast unmanned aerial systems (UAS)-based LiDAR and traditional aerial LiDAR technology for mapping coastal natural resources.
A National OCS Sand/Sediment Inventory – BOEM experts will be joined by Alexa Ramirez, a Quantum Spatial marine technical specialist, in this presentation about a tool being developed by BOEM to identify offshore sand resources.
Using the NOAA Coastal Geospatial Services Contract – At this special interest meeting, NOAA will explain how participants can begin the contracting process using CGSC, a vehicle that provides a fast, easy way for local, state and federal government entities to acquire geospatial services from the private sector.
