Why Is 3D Laser Scanning Technology Ideal for Historical Properties?
Immortalising historical data through 3D laser scan
In 2015, Andrew Tallon, an American professor of art at Vassar College visited the Notre Dame as part of a study on how medieval builders built some of Europe’s greatest cathedrals.
Here, he used a 3D laser scan to digitally preserve every square inch of the Notre Dame cathedral and rendered the data through a point cloud survey. This valuable data now plays a crucial role in the cathedral’s restoration because it offers every single information needed about the structure.
Creating smarter restoration plans with 3D laser scan
This is why more contractors, engineers and architects are now hiring a measured building survey company to help them perform these scans and render them into as built 2D AutoCAD drawings through a point cloud survey.
By working with a 3D laser scanning company, builders have the edge of knowing exactly what they’re looking at and how the finished product would be. Contact us today if you are looking for 3D laser scanning services to preserve historical properties.
