Allen Nobles, Chad Thurner and David Griswold attended the 60th Annual FSMS conference in Naples, Florida. NCG sponsored the GNSS Users Group/Emerging Technologies Committee booth for the exhibit hall. At the booth, we hosted a number of new technologies including a Virtual Reality roller coaster ride and 3D House Plan displayed on the Oculus Rift headset, fish balloon UAV, 3D prints of Earth, and various topographic projects. The VR roller coaster ride was a hit. The Virtual Reality ride had people laughing, screaming and holding onto the chair for dear life. The exhibit hall was beaming with excitement and energy. Virtual reality is definitely the future.

As always, it’s a pleasure to get reacquainted with our fellow surveyors at the annual conference whether it be a committee meeting or at the barbeque. Allen and a few attendees always get together for a late night guitar jamming session and David Griswold enjoys the fishing tournaments.
