Calgary, AB April 23, 2018 – Solv3D Inc. founder Robert Radovanovic and CEO Kevin Konynenbelt to present during ASPRS webinar on OpenLSEF Standard.
The ASPRS GeoByte Webinar entitled “OpenLSEF – A Common Language for Extracting Information from 3D Point Clouds” is schedule for Friday April 27, 2018 at 12:00pm EDT.
3D Point Clouds are becoming ubiquitous – people collect them with scanners, with drones, and with phones. However, collecting the point cloud is now the easy part of the process. Features need to be extracted and identified from the data to provide context. While many tools are being created to extract features from 3D point clouds, there is currently no agreed upon definitions of how these 3D features are to be defined. This greatly limits the ability to transfer information between applications and utilize it in subsequent analyses. It can be frustrating to be a drafter (or Artificial Intelligence) trying to learn what curbs (or kerbs) look like if no one can agree whether flow line or back-of-curb is the defining feature.
This GeoByte will present a new common language, OpenLSEF, that describes how features in 3D point clouds should be defined, by establishing definitions and terminology, products from providers can be standardized, designers can expect consistency, self-driving cars can share high-definition maps and tool-makers can focus on ensuring extraction algorithms return expected results. OpenLSEF is a user-created initiative focusing on standardizing extraction definition in the AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) field, as well as transmission, utilities and BIM (building information management). These are living standards relating to the meaning of extracted data, as opposed to simply focusing on actual file format standards. As such, OpenLSEF is data-format agnostic and is meaningful whether you deal in DWG, DGN or SHP files. The webinar will also include information regarding how to become involved in the Open LSEF Working groups.
