3d moisture mapping


Poster of the 3D moisture mapping project presented at the Digital Past 2016 Conference, 10-11 February, in Llandudno, Wales.

The 3D moisture mapping project is an attempt to combine 2D image-based environmental data (in this case microwave moisture maps) with 3D point clouds. The resulting datasets retain the colour-coded environmental information (moisture levels) with the geometric accuracy and spatial data of 3D laser scans.

The process is based on the standard cube mapping workflow for colourising point clouds and is still under development. The next research step will focus on refining the process of matching the environmental images to cube faces, which so far has been done in Photoshop using common transformation tools.

This project is being developed as a collaboration between the Digital Documentation and Science teams at Historic Environment Scotland. The building selected for the case study is Skelmorlie Aisle in Largs.
