Newest Version Will Be Demonstrated at International LiDAR Mapping Forum in New Orleans, Feb. 7 - 9

Aurora, CO – February 2, 2011 – Merrick & Company (www.merrick.com), a world leader in light detection and ranging (LiDAR), digital orthophotography, hyperspectral mapping, and geographic information systems (GIS) data integration, is pleased to announce the release of Version 7.0 of the Merrick Advanced Remote Sensing (MARS®) software suite. The MARS® software suite provides comprehensive support for LiDAR point cloud visualization, data management, automated processing, quality control, and geospatial data production.

“Our new release builds on the foundation of Version 6.0 and adds many new functions that directly support the end-user. In addition to the optimization of MARS® for 64-bit operating systems, we’ve built an automated quality control (QC) module that allows users to verify a LiDAR dataset’s compliance to the United States Geological Survey’s v13 LiDAR specification. We’ve also added support for Open Geospatial Consortium’s Web Map Service (WMS), improved data navigation performance and enhanced our breakline compilation capabilities,” stated Matt Bethel, Manager of Systems Engineering of Merrick’s GeoSpatial Solutions group.

The newest version of MARS® will be demonstrated publicly for the first time at the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF) to be held in New Orleans, Louisiana from Feb. 7 - 9, 2011 at the Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel. MARS® software demonstrations will be conducted at Merrick & Company’s exhibit at ILMF (Booth #42). Additional product information and a free, 30-day trial software download is available at www.merrick.com/MARS.   

Merrick & Company is a $100 million geospatial technologies, surveying, engineering, architecture, and design-build firm, serving domestic and international clients in the energy, infrastructure, security, and life sciences markets. The firm’s most recent work includes providing terrestrial scanning for an electrical substation for Xcel Energy and acquiring light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data for F.E. Warren Air Force Base and for a wind farm located in Kansas. Headquartered in Colorado, the employee-owned company maintains nine offices in the U.S. as well as offices in Canada and Mexico.
