The Faro 3D Laser Scanner uses infra-red lasers to accurately plot rooms and structures within a 60m radius and has the facility to stitch multiple plots together using targets. It also collects colour photographic images which are superimposed onto the plot in order to create a 3D image.
This equipment provides a very useful tool for examining crime scenes as well as historical/prehistoric rooms and landscapes. It has been used extensively by our fire investigation department to record experimental fire scenes by Forensic Science researchers.
It also has been used by members of the Archaeology department to record the site of a First World War military hospital in a cellar in Auchonvillers in France. This temporary hospital was directly connected to a trench system and still contains graffiti relating to soldiers who were taken there. In addition to the cellar, the museum on site was also scanned with a view to developing an interactive online museum.
