There are a couple of positive developments on the adoption front that have happened this week – very exciting. Pointools has announced that they have implemented an ASTM E57 read capability in their POD Creator software and Riegl is looking at a November time frame for their ability to write the E57 format.
In the case of Pointools this will also provide Microstation users with the ability to read E57 files as they are the Microstation point cloud engine.
The momentum is starting to build for the use of the E57 data exchange format. Please continue to ask your vendors for their support.
