The final part of the Technology Manifesto has been added to Parts 1 and 2 and the complete article has been published on the main Lidar News website. Here are a couple of the ideas from the final section.
The purpose of this “3D Built Environment Technology Manifesto” is to highlight the need for a vision of the future that will guide the transformation from 2D to 3D and produce the kind of software and process environments that truly reflect the best interests of customers – not technology, as the first priority.
The goal of this process would be to establish the core elements of the Manifesto with the support of the vendor community and then involve the Built Environment customer groups in an ongoing open dialogue that provides the vendors with the input they need to continually improve their product offerings over the long term.
The key to the success of this effort is to focus on where we want to be in ten years, not on where we are today. This powerful visioning technique is much more likely to produce ideas that we can all agree on rather than attempting to start with the situation today and map out the transition of existing products and strategies. There are too many reasons why that level of near term change will not be seen as feasible.
