CWEA, San Francisco Bay Section & Santa Clara Valley Section

Joint Monthly Dinner Meeting
March 16, 2017

Future of Making Things: Exploring Technology Trends

Please join us at the March joint dinner meeting which will include a fascinating presentation on the latest technology trends in the design and construction industries, including 3D scanning, cloud computing, and augmented reality. Examples from several industries will be showcased, including the use of drones to create 3D documentation for wastewater management systems. We will describe how these technologies can be used for education and storytelling to provide more impactful public messaging and operational training. Using the tools of Hollywood to tell stories can be applied to government and industrial settings, too. Learn how a smartphone camera can be used as a 3D scanner and how aerial photos can be used to generate cityscapes to aid city planners and public information officers through the power of visualization. Using today’s technology, a 3D scale model of your sewer network can make it “come alive” for your ratepayers. We hope you can join us.
