OGC Invites Input to Guide Point Cloud Standards Work

8 February 2016 — The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)  Point Cloud Domain Working Group (Point Cloud DWG) formed late last year to assess the current state of standards and best practices in the management of point cloud data and to guide OGC activities in working with or developing standards for point cloud data interoperability, discovery, and dissemination. The OGC Members  decided that the best way to begin the process is to survey the point cloud community, asking for input and details about usage of various point cloud formats, sizes, device types, etc.

Please fill out the brief online survey. Interested parties can also join the Point Cloud DWG e-mail list.

Last year, the OGC and the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) agreed to work together more closely in the application and promotion of standards and best practices for the location and geospatial industries. An early priority for this partnership is to jointly assess the current state of adopted and de facto standards for Point Cloud data and consider collaborative publication of one or more standards where there is a mutual benefit of both organizations. Survey results will be shared with the ASPRS.

The OGC® is a not-for-profit international consortium of more than 515 companies, government agencies, research organizations and universities participating in a consensus process to develop open and publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services and mainstream IT. Visit the OGC website at www.opengeospatial.org/
