Digitally Documenting the Lincoln Memorial

As a follow-up to a post last December the scanning of the Lincoln Memorial has been completed by DJS Associates.

On behalf of the National Park Service (NPS) and CyArk, a non-profit organization, DJS donated its time and resources to gather millions of data points in order to capture accurate, reliable measurements of the monument, both interior and exterior.  The highly accurate record of the three-dimensional measurements and panoramic high-dynamic range photographs will be extremely useful in site management, as well as providing the ability for visitors from all over the world to explore the Lincoln Memorial virtually.

Look for a detailed article on this project in an upcoming LiDAR News Magazine article.
