  Tripping the Laser Light Fantastic: Showcasing museums display laser precision in North America.
Museum visitors might not notice, but encasing artifacts requires stringent precision. Depending on the objects on display, showcases may feature active climate control and integrated passive humidity control. Some situations require an airtight vacuum seal or a pressurization system; others have minimal requisites, such as a dust seal. At the very least, visibility of the artifacts is crucial, second only to safety and careful preservation of each item.

  Capturing New Opportunities: Practical applications for advanced data capture technologies
A number of industries contracted severely in 2008 and are expected to remain weak. Notably absent from this trend, however, is the broad field of geospatial data capture using laser scanning, LiDAR and other technologies. The geospatial market as a whole is projected to grow over the next several years as a number of firms seek to capitalize on new opportunities,
