Software enables tablet-based 3D data capture for digital heritage preservation
HOUSTON, TX, June 25, 2013 — DotProduct CEO Brian Ahern announced it has donated five licenses its phi.3D software used for tablet-based 3D data capture to CyArk, an Oakland, California-based non-profit with the mission of digitally preserving heritage sites. Ahern says the field-ready phi.3D solution will allow CyArk to use low-cost, off-the-shelf hardware for field capture of 3D heritage data. According to Ahern, phi.3Ds real time registration, instantaneous quality feedback and tablet-based architecture produces industry standard, color point cloud files at a fraction of the cost of tripod-based solutions. Were thrilled that CyArk will be able to use our technology to digitally preserve heritage sites. CyArk director of operations Liz Lee says we are excited to use the DotProduct solution to augment our existing laser scanning and photogrammetry capture methods and provide lower cost capture options to the heritage field.
