K-W GoGeomatics March Social: 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanning of Caves

Kitchener-Waterloo’s March GoGeomatics Social will feature organizer Willie Carroll, who will be speaking on the use of 3D terrestrial laser scan data to analysis the Gomantong Cave network on the island of Borneo.

Willie will discuss the use of 3D terrestrial laser scan data to determine ancient water flow and movement within the cave. From identifying key features to having to working among hundreds of bats, Willie will explain the methods he took to determine how the cave was formed and how it continues to change today.

Please RSVP to this social on the Meetup Page.
