Yellowstone National Park 3D Rowboat Scan
In 1872, Yellowstone National Park was established as the first national park in the world.  The creation of Yellowstone was unique and represented a new concept for preserving lands and environments for future generations.  In support of the National Park Service mission, the Submerged Resource Center (SRC) documented a mid 20th century piece of history – sunken lake rowboats.  These boats were intentionally sunk in the 1950’s at the location where the old marina once stood.

3D at Depth and the SRC scanned one of these row boats to document the park history for future generations.  An SL1 was deployed in 7 scan positions in very turbid water to develop a full 3D point cloud of one of the boats.

Last summer, 3D at Depth worked closely with a team from BBC One’s television program, “Italy’s Invisible Cities,” hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Dr. Michael Scott. The episode uncovers 2,500 years of hidden history in Naples, from its earliest Greek and Roman origins, using 3D at Depth’s LiDAR scanning technology. The show explored how the volcano of Mount Vesuvius both nurtured the region and exacted a terrible price on the local population. Also, the hosts delved into a labyrinth of fascinating underground spaces that helped build and sustain the city. The program aired on 4th January on BBC One and is available at the BBC online store.  For more information visit the   BBC.
