Too bad we can't get all of the vendors to run a set of industry standard tests on
the same "targets", like the Univ of New Orleans test plate.
Also publish a set of "industry standard" specs and then any additional ones they would like to publish.
E57 is an industry standard format.
Why can't we have industry standard specs that mean the same thing to everyone?
(end of rant)
It's a great idea. A standard set of specifications for data accuracy indifferent, standard situations and over a range of distances. It's one for an independent though, not for manufacturers to do themselves. Much in the same way some mobile phone or PC review groups have standard tests they put all new kit through. So why not us?
If we propose and agree a standard test which we want to apply to all kit so we get genuine comparisons, then whoever has that kit puts it through the test, reports their results in a dedicated section here?
Could start off with one for 'typical laser scanners' ie between 0-350m then if it proves useful, a small scale one for hand scanners then a large scale one for long range kit later.
