Laser scan images
From left, James McLeod and Jeffrey Du Vernay, research associates with the Alliance for Integrated Spatial Technologies at the University of South Florida, set up a tripod-based laser scanner at Launch Complex 14 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. The AIST team is partnering with the Air Force to capture three-dimensional laser scans of National Historic Landmarks like this to document the condition of these deteriorating complexes. Launch Complex 14 was the site of several manned Mercury launches in the ‘60s including the Friendship 7 flight on Feb. 20, 1967, aboard which John H. Glenn, Jr. became the first American to orbit the Earth. (U.S. Air Force photo/Eddie Green/Released)
