Laser scan images
Members of the Alliance for Integrated Spatial Technologies at the University of South Florida set up a tripod-based laser scanner and reference points on the pad of Launch Complex 34 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. The equipment captures three-dimensional laser scans of the structure and the surrounding area. Each scan captures millions of data points and gives Cape Canaveral’s cultural resource manager the data to document the complex’s condition in order to develop preservation strategies. Launch Complex 34 is a National Historic Landmark as the site of the Apollo 1 tragedy on Jan. 27, 1967, which killed astronauts Lt. Col. Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom, Lt. Col. Edward H. White, II and Lt. Cmdr. Roger B. Chaffee. (U.S. Air Force photo/Eddie Green/Released)
