The event will be a follow-up to first ever Arizona LiDAR symposium held in August 2018. Currently, Arizona has little in the way of comprehensive LiDAR data. AGIC is leading the efforts to obtain statewide LiDAR coverage and create educational platforms that increase public and industry knowledge of LiDAR.

This event will provide an opportunity for interested parties to get together to learn about the Arizona LiDAR initiative and create networks as Arizona moves towards statewide LiDAR coverage.   

Please join the Map and Geospatial Hub and AGIC and for a day of LiDAR:
