3D Technologies R&D us Leica and modo to scan and model the Piusa Caves |

Scanning the cavern with the Leica HDS 3000 laser scanner.

"After you shut down a dangerous cave system to allow a hibernating bat population to thrive, there’s only one thing left to do… scan it with lasers..."Josh

"The caves are presented as interactive real-time 3D model where visitors can hover around using 32“ touchscreen. Cave walls, sandstone colours and minor details such as inscriptions on the sand wall made by the past visitors are observable in the computer model. Visitors can read additional information about the caverns and can take virtual tour inside the caves."
