  • ASPRS Feedback Instrumental in USGS Decision to Continue Providing Analog Camera Calibration Services
    plates becomes depleted in late 2012 That decision was made due to insufficient funding necessary to procure glass calibration plates and a limited number of responses to a previous USGS issued Request For Information RFI indicating that the film camera mapping market was declining Following the announcement of their intent to close the OSL which was released during the Milwaukee Conference USGS received significant and intense feedback from numerous ASPRS members film camera owners film camera customers and businesses State Departments of Transportation and others indicating a strong need to continue film camera calibration services beyond 2012 Additional discussions initiated during the Conference also indicated USGS could make incremental purchases of glass calibration plates over the next two years with existing funding thus enabling continued operation of the OSL beyond 2012 We are very pleased USGS decided to reverse its decision and based on discussions with our membership in Milwaukee will continue to support film camera calibration said ASPRS Executive Director James R Plasker Clearly USGS benefitted from direct communication with the membership and this decision demonstrates the value of providing a collective community voice on critical issues through ASPRS Current USGS camera calibration certificates are contractually mandated by numerous organizations and agencies at all levels of government consequently those certificates and the services of the USGS OSL are absolutely critical to a significant number of professionals in our community While we recognize the evolution from analog to digital imaging continues unabated we applaud USGS for retaining this important service which will allow those using analog cameras to remain compliant with contractual requirements USGS will work over the next year to restock the OSL glass calibration plates necessary to keep this important film camera calibration service operational thus ensuring the continued use of film mapping cameras to meet government requirements

  • ASPRS Board Approves Formation of Lidar Division
    new division and instructed Graham to obtain support from the required number of voting members of ASPRS More than sufficient signatures were collected enabling a Board ballot to finalize the establishment of the Division The rationale for forming a Lidar Division stems from the fact that technology in this area is currently exhibiting the most growth and innovation According to Graham We are I believe at a critical point in the evolution of laser scanning technology for mapping ASPRS is currently the only organized repository for technical information for mapping lidar The Society has released guidelines for horizontal and vertical accuracy for airborne laser scanning ASPRS also of course is the keeper of the LAS the ubiquitous file format exchange standard for kinematic lidar data Graham s intent was to form a vertical division within ASPRS for what he calls Kinematic Laser Scanning The focus being moving lidar platforms not stationary tripod scanners these devices are solidly an element of the survey community and are technically covered by the ASTM Reacting to the decision by the Board ASPRS Executive Director Jim Plasker observed Establishing the Lidar Division represents yet another forward leaning action by ASPRS Over the years one of the most important aspects underpinning the evolution of ASPRS has been its ability to maintain its relevance with respect to the cutting edge technologies of the day and to adapt the organization to those changing technologies Thus the Society began with only photogrammetry as its focus and within its name but over time embraced each major technological breakthrough in the now geospatial sciences This has kept ASPRS in a strong leadership position throughout its history and we see the Lidar Division fitting well within that arc The last new division added by the ASPRS Board was the Geographic Information Systems
