Please consider attending the following Terrestrial Laser Scanning  
(TLS, aka ground-based LiDAR) short course at the 2009 GSA Annual  
Meeting in Portland, Oregon, this October.

501. INTERFACE WORKSHOP: Recent developments in the methods and  
applications of terrestrial laser scanning (ground-based LiDAR) in  
geologic research and education.

Fri., 16 Oct., 8 a.m.–5 p.m., Oregon Convention Center, F150.  US$130,  
includes lunch. Limited financial support is available for students;  
see the UNAVCO Short Course Series page at for details. Limit: 20.  
CEU: 0.8.  Instructors: John Oldow and Carlos Aiken, Univ. of Texas at  
Dallas; David Phillips, UNAVCO.

This workshop will provide faculty, students, and professionals with  
the basic principles of Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS), aka ground- 
based LiDAR, workflows and best practices for the acquisition and  
processing of TLS data, an overview of various TLS platforms, and  
examples of science and education applications. This one-day workshop  
will consist of lectures and hands-on application of TLS equipment and  
data processing. TLS provides very high-resolution images over  
relatively small areas, is relatively inexpensive to acquire, and has  
been used successfully to support a wide range of geoscience  
investigations from outcrop mapping to deformation monitoring.
