Not sure I would have discovered the Wiki if not for the Open Source Software conversation. I think it would be more discover-able through this pathway if it was in the header or somehow linked here.
Good idea! Done.
@Moult I checked file formats in Wiki, so I think it would be better we start to gather all file formats in the industry in three categories:
Then we can have a better view of the whole landscape which will help all a lot to find probable solutions
BIM..? What's that?
4. CAD !
BIM is CAD but has some extra requirements which Charles M. Eastman explained them
Also, with another view that Autodesk advertised it a lot and even academia somewhat accepts it, Building is a verb and refers to building information systems (modeling/developing/management/processing, ...)
For me, all of them are "Information Systems" it doesn't matter call it GIS or BIM or PLM or even call it frog :)
@ReD_CoDE you are absolutely free to recommend more formats to go into that list, as well as to categorise them.
@Moult OS means teamwork, I just see here everybody works on her/his project(s)
Hope this works for you all
However, will do that, for instance for GIS some sites like QGIS have a list of all file formats they support
