The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has teamed up with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to create a standard that will allow worksite operators and managers to utilize geographical and topographical data from multiple providers of machine grade-control systems. The benefits of the grade-control interoperability standard were discussed at ConExpo/Con-Agg in March as part of the Tech Experience forum.

An ISO representative was to provide an update for Part 4 of ISO 15143, which is designed for worksites that use a range of equipment types and gather data from a range of service providers like Leica, Trimble and Topcon. The Worksite Topographical Data Exchange document focuses on onsite radio corrections, digital terrain models, and overall jobsite information.
