LiDAR- light detection and ranging - is a surveying method that uses pulsed laser light to measure distance, and to create 3D digital representations of physical surface characteristics. The University of Edinburgh’s uCreate Studio and the Centre for Data, Culture and Society, have two portable Leica BLK360 Lidar Scanners, which can be loaned out to staff and students, following appropriate training. The 3D datasets maintained here are those created by University of Edinburgh staff and students, using our LiDAR systems, which are then made available to be used by others in their research and art practices.
