IHEEP 2011 is another reason for Geomatics people to get excited about September in Manitoba!
For the first time IHEEP (International Highway Engineering and Exchange Program) is holding their annual international conference in Winnipeg. The conference is at the Fairmont from September 11 to 15, 2011.
You haven't heard of IHEEP? The focus of IHEEP is the application of technology to the transportation industry. Even if you are not a transportation person, this conference may interest you for a couple of reasons.
Many of the big players such as ESRI, Intergraph, Autodesk and Oracle are sponsors and presenting at the conference.
LiDAR! LiDAR! LiDAR! The IHEEP 2011 conference will have one track dedicated to LiDAR all day Tuesday September 13. That’s eight LiDAR-related presentations! One of the presentations to check out will be given by Fugro (http://www.fugro.com/) and Manitoba’s own LiDAR expert, Mario Machado.

A preliminary technical program is available on the web-site. If you are interested, one day registrations are allowed.
