Underpinning the many scenarios of digital information interacting with physical spaces will be robust methods for representing architectural geometry. The Columbia University Robotics Group has been pioneering methodologies to acquire and integrate spatial information through laser scanning. Laser scanning produces dense point clouds that give extremely accurate measurements of the spatial and material reality around us. The Cloud Lab worked with the Robotics Group to create a 3D point scan of the Low Library rotunda, a historic structure located at the heart of Columbia University's NYC campus. This data set will be utilized for future research project on augmented reality and other spatial/informational hybrids.
This project utilized the Robotics Group's Leica Geosystems HDS surveryor 3D scanning system.
