An ASTM International organizational meeting to discuss development of consensus standards for 3D laser scanners, 3D laser trackers, 3D flash ladar and other 3D imaging systems will be held June 7, 2006 at ASTM headquarters in West Conshohocken, PA. The meeting follows from the 3rd NIST Workshop on 3D Imaging Systems, held March 2-3, in which ASTM was selected as the venue to develop a suite of consensus standards for evaluating the performance and use of these systems and the deliverables derived from the data they generate. The groundwork for this meeting was laid at NIST’s 2nd Annual LADAR Performance Evaluation Workshop, which we covered and reported on. Users, vendors, service providers, trade and professional societies, and federal agencies are invited to participate. ASTM, formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials, is a voluntary standards development organization with some 30,000 members drawn from producers, users, consumers, government and academia worldwide.
