Paper Abstract

This talk summarizes the conclusions of a few of these laser scanning experiments on remote sites and the potential of the technology for imaging applications. Parameters to be considered for these types of activities are related to the design of a large volume of view laser scanner, such as the depth of field, the ambient light interference (especially for outdoors) and, the scanning strategies. The first case reviewed is an inspection application performed in a coal- burning power station located in Alberta, Canada. The second case is the digitizing of the ODS (Orbiter Docking System) at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and, the third case is the digitizing of a large sculpture located outside of the Canadian Museum of Civilisation in Ottawa-Hull, Canada.
