Launch Complex 19 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., sits quietly threatened by invasive plant species and the corrosive natural environment. The site is the location of 27 major launches including 10 manned Gemini missions. National Historic Landmarks like this are being documented and preserved with 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 documents the condition of these sites with millimeter accuracy and gives Cape Canaveral’s cultural resource manager the data to plan and develop preservation strategies.
