Laser scanners and digital cameras gather measurements from the surface of Vizcaya’s East Facade and surrounding landscape to create a series, or “cloud,” of points. This is then used to construct a virtual 3D representation of those spaces as seen in this digital rendering.
Photogrammetry relies on photographs taken from many different points to gather measurements. This image depicts the points where the Barge was photographed by a drone. The photographs are then input into software that compiles the information and creates 3D digital models.
This image depicts a type of laser scanner that captures digital information about the shape of an object using laser or light to measure the distance between the scanner and an object from many different perspectives.
Documentation In Progress
These images show how the University of Florida captures point clouds of the Barge and Swimming Pool Grotto using laser scanning and photogrammetry.
