In their first HDD field experience, the CyArk Visualization interns started work on documenting Berkeley’s historic Cheney House last week. In partnership with Berkeley’s Archaeological Research Facility, the interns used the Cyrax 2500 to begin laser scanning the building scheduled for removal during the upcoming campus expansion. The interns learned the basic set-up and operation of the scanner and how to use different types of control during the scanning process. Students also had the opportunity to learn panoramic and HDR photo techniques using CyArk’s Nikon D80 and panoramic rig. The students will complete collection this week. The documentation of the Cheney House is only a small part of a larger archaeological project taking place around the historic house. For more information on the project please see their project blog and their photo pool.
