3D laser scanning of the Charles W. Morgan

These are images showing the scan data that has been obtained from the 3D laser scanning on the ship. The reason some of them look so photo-realistic, is because we can take the digital photos that are taken by the scanner and map the colors of the photos onto the data points yielding what we called texture mapped scan data. The other images that have different colors show the raw data as it comes in from the scanner without any colors mapped to it.
