31 August 2015. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is calling for public participation in its newly-established Point Cloud Domain Working Group (Point Cloud DWG).  The purpose of the Point Cloud DWG is 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.

Details on the Point Cloud Domain Working Group can be found at: http://www.opengeospatial.org/projects/groups/pointclouddwg.  Interested parties can join the e-mail list at: lists.opengeospatial.org/mailman/listinfo/pointcloud.dwg.

The OGC is an international geospatial standards consortium of more than 510 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that “geo-enable” the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. Visit the OGC website at http://www.opengeospatial.org/contact.
