The University of Florida Historic Preservation Program and NCPTT are offering a 5 day workshop on 3D laser scanning for historic preservation. The goal of this workshop is to provide practicing professionals and students with a working knowledge of 3D laser scanning including the equipment, field work planning and techniques, processing, and products. Upon completion, participants will be able to describe the advantages and disadvantages of each technique, understand their applications, and define and articulate goals when designing a 3D laser scanning project.
