Cities are quiet, office buildings are dark, and shopkeepers are closing their brick-and-mortar stores. This dystopian sight has become the new normal during the two last years. The Covid-19 pandemic hit us hard last year. Currently, no country has escaped the effects of the deadly virus. Not only are citizens in danger of this highly infectious and deadly disease, but it also has had a devastating effect on the global economy.
The 12th of April is the International Day of Human Space Flight. There are very good reasons why this day should be celebrated. Thanks to the very first human space flight, a new era started. On April 12th, 1961, cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin from the Soviet Union became the first human to travel to space, thus making Vostok 1 the first human spaceflight.
After the first human spaceflight, a new era started not only in space, but also on the earth.
International Women’s Day has never been the same as this year. As we are currently in the middle of a pandemic, events and gatherings don’t take place. The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day should therefore not come as a surprise: “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a Covid-19 world”. Today we celebrate the tremendous efforts by women and girls shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
As Valentine’s Day is approaching us, it is time for us to share the love with the people close to us. This also includes our colleagues, with whom we share 1/3 of our time during working days. On average, that makes up to 90,000 hours over the course of our entire careers. For this year’s Valentine, we wanted to share the love we have towards our colleagues.
On February 3rd, we celebrate International Map Day. The date has not been chosen randomly, as it is to honor the first known explorer who circumnavigated the globe. A Portuguese nobleman, Fernão de Magalhães, later better-known as Ferdinand Magellan, was born on the 3rd of February in the 1480s.
There are good reasons why we should celebrate maps. Firstly, they give us a thorough understanding of our surroundings and the world we live in.
Now that we know what a point cloud is, what is the point in using it? Point clouds give us very precise and measurable data. This data can be used to create very realistic 3D models of an existing object. Capturing reality that can be easily measured and analysed is vital in some industries such as construction and architecture. There are also many other industries and a rapidly growing number of different ways to utilize point clouds.
We wish you a very Happy Holiday season and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.
As the holiday season is upon us, we find ourselves reflecting on the past year.It’s been quite a year for us all!
We hope that the holidays and the coming year will bring you happiness and success.
