Why Attend?

International Lidar Mapping Forum (ILMF) is a technical conference and exhibition showcasing the latest airborne, terrestrial, and underwater lidar as well as emerging remote-sensing and data collection tools and technologies. With a special emphasis on data acquisition, fusion, integration, processing and visualization, ILMF is the must-attend event for professionals involved in utility asset management, transportation, urban modeling, coastal zone mapping, and more.

ILMF is the ideal place to access strategic contacts, cutting-edge hardware and software, and expert education to seize the abundant opportunities in the geospatial technology market.

In 2020, ILMF will take place as part of Geo Week along with ASPRS Annual Conference, and MAPPS Federal Programs Conference meaning more education, networking, and technology under one roof than ever before! Learn more here.
