In this issue, a case study on how structure-from-motion photogrammetry, UAVs and GIS are being used to chart the success of a river restoration project; Data collection results from the mobile scanning of an arch bridge show how they have overcome the lack of flexibility in static systems; How using the latest hardware and Leica’s Captivate software has helped Gallagher deliver a complex project on time; and how this year’s UK Geoforum Lecture heard Tim Marshall on how geography has shaped people and politics around the world.
Also, a report from on the Michael Barrett award lecture given by Prof Stig Enemark at the RICS in London, and a report from the Geovation Hub where OGC members and others converged to catch up and network; and Stephen Booth reports from a day at Faro’s new UK headquarters.
