Project description
About 20 Professors and more than 30 Dr.Sc./PhDs from Finnish Geospatial Research Institute (FGI), University of Oulu (UO), University of Helsinki (HU) and Aalto University (AU) aim to create new knowledge, science, openings and breakthroughs in the emerging field of Laser Scanning (LS) by integrating the full complementary technology chain of LS inside the Center of Excellence: hardware electronics, system integration, positioning technologies, information extraction/data processing, applications and visualization, even in the 3D game engine of smartphones. We will, together with our co-operators, focus on the following goal: that laser scanning is omnipresent and affecting the life of every citizen in modern information society by early 2020. Laser scanning is a relatively new technology, but its technological foundations have been studied by the PI and Co-PIs more than 25 years.
