Head of the subdepartment of Mine survey and Geodesy at NI ISTU, Professor Anatoliy Okhotin, takes part in the International Conference HxGN LIVE 2013 (Hexagon Conference). Scientific Forum is held on June 3 - 6 in Las Vegas (Nevada). The users of Geospatial Technology Leica Geosystems, Intergraph, ERDAS, and Hexagon Metrology and experts forum from around the world will come to participate in a scientific. Organizers expect up to 3 million visitors.
According to A. Okhotin, Russian professionals in the field of geodesy, cartography, acquisition and processing of geospatial data are invited to the conference by the company Leica Geosystems (Switzerland). This company is a world leader in technology development and manufacture of surveying instruments to carry out topographical surveys, mapping, satellite navigation and others. The laboratory of Mine survey at ISTU is equipped with a robotic total station Leica Geosystems.
"The Russian delegation includes the staff of the Moscow Institute of Geodesy and Cartography, Siberian Academy of Geodesy, Siberian Federal University, Yakutsk State University, Perm State Technical University and other universities. We are interested in the latest developments in the field of remote sensing of the Earth. Participation in the international conference will encourage the development of new technologies and equipment in the field of mine surveying and geodesy, their introduction into the learning process ", said A. Okhotin.Block of the company Leica Geosystems at the conference will consist of three sections: "Geodesy, engineering survey and infrastructure (including sections of GIS, construction, and mining)," "Terrestrial laser scanning", "Geospatial solutions (air scanning, technology for processing digital image and 3D visualization of data from Leica Geosystems and Z / I Imaging). Participants will present more than 100 reports; among them are the stories of people from different countries about the experience of the application of these technologies, specialists’ reports on industry trends, announcements of new technological solutions, interactive demonstrations and master classes.
