I do not think I need to renew my membership again, but I would like to
keep it active until July 7th.
On June 24th I will participate in the OGC TC meeting in Leuven, Belgium to
present the final state of the native extension to the new LAS 1.4 point
types of the open source LiDAR point cloud compressor LASzip and that may
conclude by Point Cloud Domain working group activities within the OGC. The
idealistic objective - to avoid the fragmenting of compressed LiDAR point
data into an established open standard (LAZ) and into a proprietary closed
clone (zLAS by ESRI) - by bringing the main players into a dialogue within
the OGC framework was not accomplished as the party with the proprietary
format never participated in an open technical dialogue. The pragmatic
objective - to avoid said fragmentation - was mainly achieved through
intense stigmatization of the proprietary clone and through education about
its disadvantage over open formats to the point where most large LiDAR data
tenders and distribution portals guideline are explicitly requesting or
permitting the delivery or distribution of LiDAR point clouds exclusively
in open formats such as LAS / LAZ / ASCII.
