We were mandated by Spéléalogie Québec to create a 3D visualization of the newly discovered (fall 2017) part of the Saint-Léonard Cavern in Montréal, which we did using LiDAR technology. See previous projects to discover the work done by previous students.


UBERG projects are fuelled by the ideas and the needs of various organizations, labs, companies and individuals. We always welcome new suggestions or sponsorship to improve our research activities and to make a difference in our world. Visit get involved for more information.
