September 12-15, 2016
Our annual training event is a comprehensive training course that covers Basic to Advanced topics. The course begins with an in-depth look at using LP360 for QA/QC of LIDAR data and then focuses on the standard and advanced levels of the product. We provide a beginning and advanced session on extraction and enforcement of breakline features in the ArcGIS environment. In addition, attendees learn how to use the manual and automated classification tools, including classifying ground, model key points and buildings. We also cover creation of on-the-fly 3D points, polylines and polygons, cross sections and volumetric analysis.
Each day includes ample hands-on time for attendees.
Attendees are required to supply their own laptop for the training and should have working knowledge of the base ESRI™ software. Attendees must have administrative privileges on their laptops in order to install the license file which will be made available at the training.

Monday, September 12
QA/QC of LIDAR Data for ASPRS and USGS Compliance
In this session we will cover the recommended workflow for using LP360 in the quality assurance and quality control process of LIDAR data. We will examine the tools and processes necessary to satisfy the criteria as laid out in the ASPRS Positional Accuracy Standards for Digital Geospatial Data, as well as the USGS LIDAR Base Specification. As this session will use several basic level tools this module is also a good overview for LIDAR data and the general use of LP360, with applicability to a wide variety of applications.
Prior experience with the LP360 interface is recommended. We will supply a set of pre-training exercises in advance to all participants. Either LP360 for ArcGIS or LP360 for Windows may be used in this session.
Tuesday, September 13
Automatic and Manual Classification of Features and Extraction of Outlines
In this session (which builds upon the knowledge learned during the first two sessions) we will cover the recommended workflows for LIDAR data classification. The process highlights the concepts for starting with a fully unclassified dataset and works its way into techniques for classifying common above ground features.
Prior experience with LP360 for ArcGIS or LP360 for Windows is highly recommended. We will supply a set of pre-training exercises in advance to all participants. Either LP360 for ArcGIS or LP360 for Windows may be used in this session.
Wednesday/Thursday, September 14 & 15
Breakline and Feature Elevation Identification
In this session we will examine the tools in LP360 for elevation conflation and classification. A common use of these tools is to enforce breaklines for cartographic DEM production, as outlined in the USGS LIDAR Base Specification. An additional common use is to extract elevation information from features as either attributes or geometry, for example: building heights for various use cases, such as the building heights for fire department analysis.
Prior experience with the LP360 for ArcGIS interface is highly recommended. We will supply a set of pre-training exercises in advance to all participants. Participant must have valid license for ArcGIS for this session as GeoCue will be unable to provide one.
Thursday, September 15
Site Mapping and Volumetrics
In this session we will cover the recommended workflow for site mapping and stockpile volumetrics from planning and acquisition through to product delivery. This session will provide a good overview for those looking to make use of sUAS in generating volume calculations, or just trying to see what the industry buzz is all about.
Prior experience with the LP360 interface is recommended, but not required. We will supply a set of pre-training exercises in advance to all participants. LP360 for Windows will be used in this session.
