IAFSM-ACSR Joint Conference 2022

Post by dcacioppo »

We are happy to announce that FSM, along with the Association for Crime Scene Reconstruction (ACSR) will be holding a live, in-person conference February 14-18, 2022 in Denver, CO, USA. This is a conference you will want to attend!

FSM plans to offer our Basic Laser Scanning Certification course at our 2022 conference. The FSM Training Committee is also moving forward with requirements for an Advanced Laser Scanning Certification. There will be requirements and prerequisites for this as well.

Watch for updates to see when registration becomes available.

Hope to see you in Denver, CO in 2022.

Algorithms between all the scanners and registration software's are so different. Honestly I'd sooner try and train a brand new user to use Register360 then try and train a person with Scene background to use Register360... Faro users trying to convert to Leica is such a hurdle. I cross it weekly, and the methods of work are so different. The registration software also affects the field procedures. So to blanket cerify a scanner operator is not really good. And I have only mentioned Leica and Faro here, never mind Surphaser, Artec, Topcon, Optech, Carlson and every other flavor out there.

Really need software and hardware specific certifications.

Without great understanding of the algorithms of each software package it is IMHO impossible to certify a user as a blanket laser scanner. They would need be certified independently for each software separately. To run the scanners in the field is the simple part. But the registration and processing parameters are the wild card. I always hate this topic, especially between Leica and Faro users, as the two manufacturers work so differently. And the software is the huge hurdle.

The primary goal of the Basic Laser Scanning Certification course is to provide a foundation and
background for those wishing to use the laser scanner in areas such as collision reconstruction, crime
scenes, fire and security. Subject areas such as history, technology, applications and future trends are presented.

The International Association of Forensic and Security Metrology is a nonprofit professional association of users, researchers, service providers, and manufacturers of metrological techniques and technology working for the advancement of justice. The Association's mission is to promote the development and use of precision measurement systems, techniques and software in the generation of two- or three-dimensional coordinate spatial data for documentation, planning, analysis and/or presentation purposes in the service of justice.

Please check us out and join. Would love to see you at our conference.
