Using Laser Scanning Technology to Preserve our Heritage

1st October, 2018

Attingham Park is a Grade 1 listed English country house in Shropshire, owned and managed by the National Trust. LandScope were recently requested to develop a 3D model of a domed window frame which houses and protects the original stained glass structure.

LandScope deployed the Trimble TX8 laser scanner, a combination of the compensator and high-precision mode ensured clean and accurate data from which the new glass could be modelled.

‘It is wonderful to think the application of 21st Century technology is helping us to preserve an 18th Century masterpiece’, commented Tom Card, Specialist Survey Manager.
