The Photogrammetry, 3D Visualization, and Lidar (P3DL) Community of Practice Conference will be taking place August 12-15, 2024. This is a joint conference between Photogrammetry and 3D Visualization CoP and the Lidar/3D CoP. This year’s theme is “Navigating the Third Dimension: From Pixels to Precision.”

The goal of the conference is to collaboratively drive innovation and explore capabilities for precision geopositioning/targeting, precision mensuration, 3D visualization, lidar, and 3D data related technologies to help answer current and emerging DoD and IC needs. Attendees from across the U.S. government, academia, and industry are invited to collaborate on innovations in sensor advancement, algorithm development, and tradecraft. We endeavor to create an environment where participants can discuss successes and challenges, and exchange ideas on future work.

This year’s event will be in held in person at NGA Campus East (NCE) as well as available virtually to attend if not located at NGA Washington. It will feature an in person unclassified Technology Expo on Tuesday, August 13, open to all conference attendees and NGA personnel. Industry partners are encouraged to showcase the latest technologies and innovations to compliment the topics discussed throughout the conference. The first two days of the conference will be unclassified sessions which will be held in person as well as on WebEx or Microsoft Teams. The last two days will be classified sessions and will be held in person as well as have a simultaneous IC Connect for those not located at NGA Washington.
