The meeting was very constructive and, despite some technical hurdles, we were able to get Martin dialed into the session. Everything was recorded and the slides are publicly available. I will be working this evening to get assets to our public repository and notes as soon as possible. We have a commitment from OGC membership to form a Domain Working Group to address Point Cloud activities and that group will be open to the public. That Domain Working Group has as first work items consideration of authoring a Best Practice on the use of the current standards / de facto standards in the LiDAR community and a possible Interoperability Experiment. A few members and I will work on expediting the stand-up of this Domain Working Group - occurring as I type this note.
To recap, here were the speakers and topics:
•Scott Simmons, OGC: Introduction to Point Cloud discussion and summary of standards efforts
•Jeff Young, ASPRS: ASPRS activities with LiDAR data
•Chris Little, UK Met Office: What (where and when) is the Point in Meteorology
•Keith Ryden, Esri: Enterprise community requirements for point clouds
•Jason Smith, Exelis (NGA): Sensor Independent Point Cloud (SIPC) data format, a profile of HDF5
•Michael Gerlek, RadiantBlue: Current situation and future work for point clouds
•Peter Baumann: Point clouds in coverages
•Martin Isenburg, OSGeo: Open Source community drivers for point cloud standards
•Doug O’Brien, IDON Technologies: ISO and point cloud standards

>>> Following on from the OSGeo Open Letter on the Need for Open Standards in LiDAR , Martin Isenburg has been invited to give a 10 minute presentation as part of the Point Cloud discussion at the next OGC Technical Committee Meeting, 3pm EDT, this Monday 1 June , in Boulder Colorado USA. It is possible to participate in this meeting via goto-meeting and phone, although I'm not sure about capacity. Scott Simmons (CCed) from the OGC has details.
>>> I've seen Martin's slides. They are excellent. They clearly articulate the problem, and provide a clear and simple 5 step solution.
>>> Martin, your slides, in combination with any actions, feedback, or comments that come from this meeting will be very news worthy. I suggest that you publish these slides, or alternatively convert them to a blog post or similar, and publish soon after the meeting.
>>> We should also approach news agencies as we did before and invite them to write up this story. Telling this story will help the greater community understand how to promote and select Open LiDAR standards.
>>> Martin, I'm sure I speak for the OSGeo community and 140 people who signed your letter in wishing you all the best in your presentation on Monday.
