Researchers from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Australia's national science agency, have created an interior 3D map of Italy's Leaning Tower of Pisa by using a Zebedee 3D mapping system. The Zebedee device is a handheld 3D mapping system which incorporates a laser scanner swaying on a spring to capture millions of detailed measurements of a site as fast as an operator can walk through it. Image processing software then converts the acquired laser data into a detailed 3D map. >>>Read more.
