To coincide with US Hydro 2017, but open to all, QPS in partnership with the University of Houston, invite you to attend an Advanced Backscatter Workflow Workshop on Monday, 20th March at the University of Houston in Downtown Houston, Texas
The workshop will be hosted by Dr Jonathan Beaudoin, QPS Chief Scientist and one of the co-authors on the Backscatter Working Group document "Backscatter measurements by seafloor-mapping sonars - Guidelines and Recommendations". Dr Beaudoin will discuss many of the technical and field aspects of collecting great backscatter, particularly touching on best-practices associated with particular hardware and software configurations and also survey design considerations, as described in the Backscatter Working Group report which can be found here: http://geohab.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/BWSG-REPORT-MAY2015.pdf .
This workshop will be a series of presentations and demonstrations, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptops and data. Qimera or Fledermaus licences will be available for attendees of the workshop, and for the 30 days following we will provide trial licenses for further evaluation of our QPS workflow solution.
The workshop will start at 0900 and finish around 1600. The cost per attendee is; $500/attendee
Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.
