Project of the month: Preserving cultural heritage digitally

Cultural assets and monuments are treasures of humanity. Comprehensive documentation of them is an important part of protecting, researching and distributing them for educational purposes. The FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D provides an excellent way to document cultural heritage. It records the sometimes delicate objects completely and with absolute precision in 3D, without needing to touch them.

We have developed a brochure and created texts for our customer FARO, which put the impressive range of uses of the scanner into perspective. It can document archaeological sites or emergency excavations, or assist in repair work carried out on monuments, virtual reconstructions and possibilities for augmented reality. The scanner and the software have as-yet-untapped potential in the areas of education and visualisation.
