3d Rock art scanning update
I have mentioned using 3d laser scanning technology to record rock art before. Now the archaeology data service has made the archive of the project: Breaking Through Rock Art Recording: 3D laser scanning of megalithic rock art available. There are lots of nice images and renderings of the scans available and it is even possible to get hold of the 3d data if you ask for it and pay a fee as the files are quite big. The sites scanned for the project were Long meg, Castlerigg, Copt Howe and Horseshoe rock.
