The team at Orbis have just completed the first phase of the Calderstones project which involved 3D laser scanning each of the stones on site in Liverpool prior to moving them to our studio in Greenwich next month. The laser scanning will provide a thorough record of their current condition and provide a means for assessing their stability in the future. In addition it is hoped that the scans might be used to produce replica sections of the important Neolithic carvings which will aid with visitor understanding in their new display. 3D laser scanning captures the
physical form and measurements of an area or structure as a cloud of millions of data points. This density enables structures to be represented in very high detail, and importantly the process is non invasive.
