Paper Abstract

The task of accurately reconstructing scenes for interpretation has frequently proved problematic. Conventional methods of reconstructing 3D scenes often involve sacrificial trade-offs among several parameters: (1) completeness of scene reconstruction, (2) geometric accuracy, (3) time for capturing information and creating 3D computer models, (4) the need to not disturb the original scene during data capture, and (5) cost. A compelling, new technology, Large-scale 3D Laser Scanning, Modeling and Visualization, promises to have a major impact on the field by delivering 3D computer models of scenes that are both highly accurate and complete, in a more timely, and cost- effective manner.
