Stonehenge Scanning Results

The survey results captured within each element and specified point cloud resolution were then utilised within specialised digital modelling software to provide realistic meshed models to each data set.

Using the colour overlay captured by the laser scanners, photo realistic models of the Stone Circle and each and every stone could then be visualised for use in future studies.

The meshed model data and laser scan point cloud data has now been officially handed over to English Heritage for archiving within the National Monuments Record Office in Swindon and to aid further investigation and interpretation of the site.

Going forward, the data will also be used as a basis for a virtual reality model being prepared for the new visitors centre, planned for opening in 2013.
