Application of High-resolution Laser Scanning and Photogrammetric Techniques to Data Acquisition, Analysis and Interpretation in Palaeontology

Integrated laser scanning and photogrammetry remote methods of collecting three dimensional (3D) spatial and geometrical data has to-date been under-utilized in palaeontology. Laser scanning provides a dense point cloud that represents a precisely sampled replica of an object’s surface geometry. Integrating a digital camera into the scanning unit allows… (More)
