Scanning of Rockefeller’s bridges planned



BAR HARBOR — Nickolay Hristov and Louise Allen of Winston-Salem State University will talk about their plan to use laser scanning technology to document Rockefeller’s bridges in Acadia National Park when they speak in the McCormick Lecture Hall at College of the Atlantic on Thursday, May 24, from 7-8:30 p.m.

Using ground-based lidar, researchers and artists are producing detailed, visual and spatial records that document culturally valuable landscape features and guide resource management in decision-making about their protection. The technology will provide precise measurements and visual reference of the landscape surrounding Rockefeller’s bridges.

At this talk, Hristov and Allen will show 3D visualizations and a demo of a laser scanner. The researchers are working in conjunction with Interpreters and Scientists Working on Our Parks.
