First I would like to take this opportunity to note that the ASTM E57.04 subcommittee on data interoperability has been receiving reports that the standard has been making a real difference in the handling of mobile data and in the streamlining of workflows, particularly involving images. This is coming from end users.
Second we are seeking input on the use of the standard for archiving of point cloud data. One area of particular interest is the creation of as-builts for construction projects. The goal is to develop a requirements document. We are interested in issues such as the use of a database software and compression.
Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.
