A New Common Language for Feature Extraction – OpenLSEF
Posted on April 12, 2018 by lidar
A fresh initiative to develop a common language for extracting information from a 3D point cloud is being referred to as OpenLSEF. The ASPRS is hosting a free webinar to explain this effort on April 27, 2018 at 12 PM EDT.

The people involved with this believe that while many tools are being created to extract features from 3D point clouds, there is currently no agreed upon standards for 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 an Artificial Intelligence engine) trying to learn what curbs (or kerbs) look like if no one can agree, for instance, whether flow line or back-of-curb is the defining feature.

Very instructive webinar. The need to include standardised metadata in point clouds covering source, accuracy, age etc.. is becoming increasingly important with the proliferation of very different measurement devices producing output in the same formats.
