Colleagues,

This development will be of interest to the whole GIS Academic community as it not only affects our Academic colleagues working in LIDAR research and teaching but will have long term impacts on Open Principles in Geo Education.

Best wishes,

Suchith

Thanks Patrick for surfacing this. Yes, this should be opened up for scrutiny by the entire community and we should all weigh in.

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I believe the OSGeo Board need to look into this and prepare a position paper with inputs from the community as this has wider implications. This also need to be discussed with like minded organisations. We all can provide the needed support for this.

Jeff and OSGeo Board - please add this to the next month Board meeting's  agenda items. Thanks.

Best wishes,

Suchith

Emne: [Ica-osgeo-labs] The LAS format, the ASPRS, and the “LAZ clone” by ESRI

Dear OSGEO,
For what our good name is worth. . .
Do we have an opinion on something so essential as an open standard for a data format?
Speak now, or forever hand over your wallet. Individual and collective response encouraged.

Can OSGEO provide a short position paper commenting on our values? I.e., “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all [data] are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these [is Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Openness].”

[First paragraph]
We are concerned about ESRI’s next moves in forcing yet another proprietary format into wide-spread deployment. Forwarded emails, retold conversations, and personal experiences suggest that sneaky tactics<http://rapidlasso.com/2014/11/06/keeping-esri-honest/> are being used to disrupt the harmony in open LiDAR formats that we have enjoyed for many years.

Thanks much,
