Project Snapshot: 3D Room Scan for Historic Renovation

This beautiful image is aligned scan data of the Senate Chamber in the Maryland Statehouse. The Statehouse was undergoing renovations when we were called to digitally document the original brick walls before the work continued. With only one day to document the entire chamber, 3D scanning was a natural choice: fast, complete and accurate data in just a few hours.

The state now owns data that can be used to plan future renovations or restorations, to create a digitally history exhibit or even simply to be used as a record of the room's condition at the time of scan.
