The objective of the Photogrammetry, 3D Visualization, and Lidar Community of Practice Conference (P3DL) is to give attendees from the DoD, IC, academia, and industry an opportunity to collaborate on advances and emerging capabilities in the field of lidar and 3D visualization related topics. This includes, but is not limited to, advances in sensors, processing, and exploitation of ground, air and space-based point clouds to include lidar, electro-optical, or other. Participation in this open forum can improve cross-community collaboration and communication.

The conference will include industry technologies and products being showcased during the unclassified Technology Expo. Attendees will be exposed to the latest technologies from industry in lidar systems, imaging sensors, geospatial intelligence, applied imagery, 3D mapping, laser light beams, electronic light tables, 3D visualization, indoor mapping, autonomous vehicles, and exploitation of data.

The Technology Expo will be taking place on Tuesday, August 9. Exhibiting companies are encouraged to provide live demos and hands-on training to benefit the attendees. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to meet with forum attendees as well as personnel working in the building.
