DescriptionThis data represents 3 scans from a Leica ScanStation 2 laser scanner. The data was scanned and stored in Leica’s Cyclone software and the data is now millions of simple; x,y,z triples of positions. The data was collected against a local reference system but the position of the scanner was in front of the Penrhyn Building on the Kingston University in London. The coordinates of this building are (518048/168484). The data itself is in shapefile format so could be opened in most GIS systems, or converted to other formats. However, this data can also be manipulated in 3D by packages such as ArcScene. This data is still in a raw format and is intended to give users data to manipulate in 3D packages such as ArcScene. Users should note that the data is not output in any usable refrence frame. Data is still in a somewhat raw format. Collected by Leica ScanStation 2 laser scaner and converted to x,y,z triples in Leica Cyclone software. Data loaded into ArcScene and converted into a shapefile. GIS vector data. This dataset was first accessioned in the EDINA ShareGeo Open repository on 2011-01-19 and migrated to Edinburgh DataShare on 2017-02-21.
