Stonehenge Scanning Process

The 3D laser scan process was undertaken over a 4-6 week period on site, using the very latest survey technology to provide high quality point cloud data for further use in meshed modelling procedures.

The Landscape Environment was recorded using a Leica C10 pulse based laser scanner, typically recording data at a resolution of between 10 & 50 mm.

The Stone Circle was recorded using a Z+F 5006h phased based laser scanner with results recorded at a resolution of 1mm.

Finally a more in-depth survey of each stone face was then undertaken using the very latest Z+F high definition phased based, Imager 5010 laser scanner with results recorded at a stereo scan resolution of 0.5mm.
