Data




Equipment

Our laboratory is equipped with the latest generation in range sensing technology (Leica 3D laser scanning system) . The necessary funding was provided by the National Science Foundation under Grants 0821383 and 0215962. Our scanners can provide dense spherical 3D range scans  of outdoor and indoor environments. Indoor scanners (Matterport and DotProduct, LLC) are part of thour laboratory as well. High end digital color cameras are used for the acquisition of color photographs. Linux- and Windows-based workstations are used for processing and visualization.
