Jie Shan named finalist for LiDAR Leader Award
Professor Jie Shan and cohort Charles Toth, Research Professor at Ohio State University, received the 2019 LiDAR Leader Award (2nd Place) from the International LiDAR Mapping Forum. They were recognized for their edited publication, Topographic Laser Ranging and Scanning, which is a "seminal reference book for anyone seriously involved in the LiDAR industry. There are few comprehensive reference books on this subject, and none that compares in overall content and technical depth. This book by Shan and Toth is now in 2nd edition. It represents a culmination of decades of experience in LiDAR and mapping for these two prominent individuals."
