LIDAR Magazine Designated Official Publication

Irvine, CA & Frederick, MD – August 24, 2017 – The U.S. Institute of Building Documentation (www.usibd.org) and Spatial Media, publisher of LIDAR Magazine (www.lidarmag.com) have joined forces to showcase the growing building documentation industry. The groups will work to promote industry standards, increased membership in the institute and to raise awareness of USIBD’s “Certified Building Documentation Professional” (CBDP) certification.

John Russo, Founder and President of USIBD said “LIDAR Magazine is widely recognized as the industry’s voice of record on a variety of issues, addressing building documentation, heritage preservation, BIM technology and more. We’re appreciative of their commitment to our organization”.

All current and future USIBD members will receive LIDAR Magazine as part of their membership. In addition to the magazine, a newly focused newsletter and thought leadership initiative from Spatial Media titled “Construction 2020” will be utilized to reach contractors and other building professionals considering the adoption of documentation technology.

Ken Smerz, long-time contributor of LIDAR Magazine’s “The Business of Laser Scanning” column and operator of industry leader Eco3D (www.eco3dusa.com) remarked “For some time now, we’ve been encouraged to encounter USIBD’s Level of Accuracy (LOA) specification across a variety of RFP’s. We’ll continue working to foster the acceptance of USIBD standards moving forward.”

Allen Cheves, President of Spatial Media and Publisher of LIDAR Magazine added “The building documentation space is rapidly evolving so it’s good to have key voices on the same page. We’ve long valued the USIBD’s effort to standardize the implementation of LIDAR technology.”

Spatial Media (www.spatialmedia.us) will utilize LIDAR Magazine, sister publication The American Surveyor and the newly developed Construction 2020 project to support this initiative.
