In their quarterly eNewsletter the USIBD reports that their recent annual conference was a great success. In addition to the outstanding program and networking they also provided training and testing on their specification for Level of Accuracy in building documentation.
Bryan Merritt, Symposium Chair commented, “We had a SPECIAL announcement from FARO during the event. They previewed, in BETA format, the integration of the USIBD LOA specifications into their PointSense software. This is HUUUUGGGGEEEE for us. It provides a colorful and graphical comparison of the point cloud compared to the model using the LOA criteria. So you can choose the LOA standard you want to review and SHAZAAM, using a color display you can see where within your model you adhere or fail the spec. Very cool!”
This grassroots organization is beginning to reach critical mass. Kudos to John Russo and the many volunteers that are making this happen.
