3D Laser Scanning Preserves National Historic Treasures

The National Park Service is collaborating with CyArk and DJS Associates to generate a 3D model of the Lincoln Memorial using laser scanning technology. The goal is to produce digital documentation to assist with future preservation work, and to allow visitors worldwide to virtually tour the memorial.  Vertical Access was asked to assist with the project in an area of the memorial where the location and operation of the scanning equipment presented a challenge to position.  Learn more.
 
Help Preserve the New York State Pavilion

CyArk and the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation & Training  want to digitally preserve the 1964-65 World’s Fair New York State Pavilion. Using high-speed, high-precision 3D laser scanners all resulting 3D data will be made freely available to the public.  Learn more on their Kickstarter site.
