Historic Scotland digitally scans US Presidents
May 19 2010
The group, which includes the Glasgow School of Art’s Digital Design Studio, has spent the past week clambering all around the famous monument the chiseled features of Abe Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson can now be appreciated in minute detail with the production of dense point cloud renderings.
Multiple vantage points are combined to create the renderings which are sufficiently detailed to serve as models for the maintenance and interpretation by the National Parks authority.
Mount Rushmore is the first of five international sites the team will digitally recreate over the next five years in a bid to sell the homegrown expertise abroad.
