Laser scanning has increasingly become a commonly used method for the recording of historic and landmark structures. From landmarks as diverse as the face of Mount Rushmore to the Long Island Duck, scanning has been used to document in 3D data format the current physical conditions of surface and details. The processed scan data serves both as a basis for study or source for measured drawings should replacement or restoration be required at a later date. Actus3d will provide both interior and exterior scanning of your landmark project. A color camera built into the scanner enables the scan data to be augmented by color photography. The completed colorized scan dataset will provide a detailed inventory of all artifacts on display and graphically illustrate the present condition of the building. The scan data can also be placed online, allowing for virtual tours and remote study.
In conjunction with scanning, photoplans derived from high quality digital photographs will provide a record of color, materials, texture and the current state of conservation of a building or structure, a valuable tool when planning for restoration or providing a detailed record of a landmark.
