LAStools Win Big at INTERGEO Taking Home Two Innovation Awards

  • Rating12345

At INTERGEO 2017 in Berlin, rapidlasso GmbH – the makers of the popular LiDAR processing software LAStools – were awarded top honors in both of the categories they had been nominated for: most innovative software and most innovative startup. The third award for most innovative hardware went to Leica Geosystems for the BLK360 terrestrial scanner. The annual Wichman Innovation Awards have been part of INTERGEO for six years now. Already at the inaugural event in 2012 the open source LiDAR compressor LASzip of rapidlasso GmbH had been nominated, coming in as runner-up in second place.

Dr. Martin Isenburg, the founder and CEO of rapidlasso GmbH, receives the two innovation awards at the ceremony during INTERGEO 2017 in Berlin.

After receiving the two awards Dr. Martin Isenburg, the founder and CEO of rapidlasso GmbH, was quick to thank the “fun, active, and dedicated user community” of the LAStools software for their “incredible support in the online voting”. He pointed out that it was its users who make LAStools more than just an efficient software for processing point clouds. Since 2011, the community surrounding LAStools has constantly grown to several thousand users who help and motivate each other in designing workflows and in solving format issues and processing challenges. They are an integral part of what makes these tools so valuable, so Dr. Isenburg.
