The mundane becomes interesting if the context is changed

Tim Sinnott’s video of the Radiohead LIDAR was interesting to me for two reasons. First off it was nice to see LIDAR being used in what I suppose is mainstream media and the second is the thought that Thom Yorke would stand there and let a laser hit their face for what must have been hours. Well it looks like Tim O’Brien from O’Reilly apparently noticed this and asked Tim for an interview to talk about the process. The result is a nice little discussion about how we as GIS professionals approach our work (it is even cute how O’Brien calls ArcScene “Art Scene”) and something as mundane as importing LIDAR into ArcMap/ArcScene becomes interesting to those who know nothing about GIS.
