We're sharing a new video animation produced from point cloud data of the Ellis Island Main Hospital Buildings. The video provides a unique view of the interior and exterior of the historic buildings showing deteriorating conditions further damaged by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
The Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) has produced a fly-through animation of the point cloud data captured while documenting historic Ellis Island, New York.
See this unique site and its hidden rock features inaccessible to park visitors in this aerial fly-through animation.
We've posted a new fly-through video animation on our HABS/HAER/HALS YouTube Channel. This video provides a unique perspective of the best preserved pu'uhonua, or place of refuge, at Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park recently documented by the Historic American Landscapes Survey.
We've just posted a new fly-through animation of Bravo Test Area in Area II of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory in California. This video helps illustrate how once a historic site is recorded with a high-definition laser scanner and 3D modeling is completed, HAER measured and interpretive drawings are produced to become part of the official documentation for the HABS/HAER/HALS Collection - the nation's largest archive of historic architectural, engineering, and landscape documentation - in ...
We've uploaded a new animation of the Space Shuttle Discovery currently being documented by HAER. The video provides some unique views of the Orbiter through point cloud fly-throughs and large format photographs, and shows how 3D mesh and solid models are used to generate HAER measured and interpretive drawings for the HABS/HAER/HALS Collection in the Library of Congress.
Did you know that the center span of the Arlington Memorial Bridge (Spanning Potomac River between Lincoln Memorial & Arlington National Cemetery) is a drawbridge, or more specifically a two-leaf bascule span? It's true but it hasn't opened since 1965! HAER architects recently created an animation showing one leaf of the center span opening. Watch the animation see what's hidden inside the Arlington Memorial Bridge.
See historic totem poles of Sitka National Historical Park in a whole new way with this interpretative, fly-through animation produced by the Historic American Landscapes Survey.
In addition to producing measured drawings documentation of these unique structures from the data obtained from the laser scanner, we are also able to produce interpretative products, such as this video, for our project partners.
We've posted fly-through animation of the HABS documentation of the Arctic Brotherhood Hall in Skagway, Alaska on our YouTube Channel.
