The Digital Preservation Coalition and the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland invite you to join them at a workshop to explore the preservation of 3d laser scan data. The event will take place on May 1, 2013 in Edinburgh, Scotland and although the webpage indicates that it is booked I think it is still important to take note of.
The promo states, “Current best practice guidance for the long term preservation of 3D laser scan data, in particular the required metadata is found to be onerous by data creators. This workshop will bring together leading practitioners from the archaeological community, alongside leading data archivists and software suppliers in the UK and Ireland to work towards agreeing a new metadata standard to facilitate preservation.”
I am pleased to see that Faraz Ravi from Bentley Systems will be discussing the ASTM E57 data exchange format which could be of tremendous value to this discussion.
