Workshop description:

This session will explore Preservation documentation using the Leica P40, Leica BLK360, iStar Camera as well as a high accuracy close range scanner for artifacts (AICON PrimeScan). Individuals will have an opportunity to run the equipment, download and process the scan data and produce a 3D Jet Stream Viewer file and be introduced to digital workflows utilized in Preservation/Heritage applications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Hands-on use of scanner equipment and cameras
  • Processing of data and hands-on use on software
  • Produce 3D Jet Stream Viewer file
  • Overview of 3D digital workflows using scan data

Workshop presenters: 

  • Walter Bentley, currently Leica Geosystems sales manager in Canada. Walter has been engaged in 3D modelling technology & digitization solutions for over 20 years.
  • Ken Percy, is a PhD student in Architecture at Carleton University.  His research is focused on digital documentation and fabrication in architecture.  Through the Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) Ken has led research on a number of significant projects including laser scanning and survey of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa.
  • Karen Hughes, currently a trainer for Leica Geosystems has been working with LIDAR technology since 2000.  She holds a Masters Degree in Building Conservation from the University of York, England and worked on the private side for many years in preservation and scanning.
