To register for the webcast, go to:

In this educational, information-packed session, you will discover how to:

?? Create rich data sets with imagery in your workflow.
?? Optimize troubleshooting in the field with imagery.
?? Use field sketches on imagery eliminate the need to manually transcribe notes.
?? Precisely control a robotic instrument using imagery.
?? Use imagery to verify field tasks and document field deliverables.
?? Use imaging to grow your surveying business.

At the end of the webcast, an interactive Q&A period will give participants the opportunity to ask questions and get real answers.

**Attendees will also receive afree limited edition poster with a cross-sectional drawing of the Leica Geosystems TS30 - the most precise total station in the world.**

"Our goal is to offer useful information and real-world examples of how the proper use of imaging can revolutionize surveying workflow." says Hixon. "Imaging technology is finally at a place where the practical implementation can actually bring real value to the user"

Well-attended IADC 35th Dredging Seminar took place in Singapore, November 2010.

More than 30 participants from around the world -- including Argentina, China, India, Israel, Malaysia, Morocco, The Netherlands, Nigeria, The Philippines, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and United Kingdom -- came to Singapore for the 35th IADC International Seminar on Dredging and Reclamation.

The seminar was organised by the International Association of Dredging Companies in co-operation with the National University of Singapore in Singapore from 8 - 12 November 2010. Since 1993 the IADC has regularly run week-long seminars especially developed for professionals in dredging-related industries to familiarise them better with the many aspects and challenges of dredging.

Dredging experts from IADC member companies presented the lectures and
complemented theory with their practical knowledge and experience. Amongst the subjects covered were the development of new ports and maintenance of existing ports; project phasing; descriptions of types of dredging equipment; costing of projects and types of dredging projects.
Events outside of the classroom were equally important and stimulating.

Singapore has been the site of many extensive dredging projects and a highlight of the week was a visit to the site of the International Cruise Terminal Project. Enthusiastic employees of JTC were happy to show participants equipment in action and provide them with a deeper insight into the intricacies of the dredging operation. In addition, mid-week a dinner was organised, where the participants, lecturers and other dredging employees mingled,
networked and discussed the real world of dredging.

The next IADC seminar will be organised in co-operation with UNESCO – IHE in Delft, The Netherlands from 20 – 24 June 2011. The Seminar is aimed at decision makers and their advisors in governments, port and harbour
authorities, off-shore companies and other organisations that have to execute
dredging projects. The cost of the seminar will be € 1.950 (VAT inclusive).

The fee includes all tuition, seminar proceedings, workshops and a special
participants dinner, but is exclusive of all travel costs and accommodation.
