First 3D Laser Scanned Images of Chinese Tombs

The Glasgow School of Art Media Centre has recently published some of the first 3D laser scanned images of the next Scottish Ten project. The Eastern Qing Tombs – in use from 1666 to 1911 – are the final resting place of some of China’s best known emperors. The Imperial Tombs of the Ming and Qing Dynasties were both designated as a World Heritage Site in 2000 – UNESCO describing it as a “masterpiece of human creative genius”.
