Laser scan images
This “beehive” blockhouse is one of two at Launch Complex 31/32 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., where the Air Force tested Minuteman missiles in the '60s and ‘70s. Sites like this are being documented and preserved by three-dimensional laser scanning technology through a partnership between the Air Force and the Alliance for Integrated Spatial Technologies at the University of South Florida. Each scan captures millions of data points and gives Cape Canaveral’s cultural resource manager information to document their condition as well as the possibility of offering virtual tours of these historic sites in the future.
