Bill Carr Forestry Grant from Laser Technology Sprouts Success

by KHarrold 17. December 2014 14:09

The late Bill Carr was an industry leader with over 50 years of experience in forestry. He began his career on June 9, 1958 as a timber cruiser with the U.S. Forest Service. Throughout the course of his career, he worked very closely with Laser Technology, Inc., (LTI) and helped with the creation of the original Criterion laser designed for tree height and diameter measurements as well as forestry mapping applications. This was considered the very first reflectorless handheld total station. After Bill retired from the U.S. Forest Service he continued to work with LTI as an industry consultant, traveling all over the world to speak about timber measurement practices at conferences and colleges. Mr. Carr also had major influence on the development of the very first electronic BAF-scope and dendrometer called the Criterion RD 1000. More...
