  • coordinate standards.

    The debate about labelling axis has generated much heat, but I haven't seen
    any convincing arguments proving the need for it at all. Since it is a
    trivial matter to transpose the arbitrary algebraic symbols x,y,z from any
    sequence to any other - surely the only important requirement is to have a
    standard for reporting the measning of the labels. Data should always be
    presented with a clear description of its recorded orientation and that
    being done no further (and somewhat bureucratic rules) are needed to avoid
    ambiguity. So the standards should address the clarity of reporting - (the
    real problem) - and be less concerned with a minor administrative matter.
