In Crete, a team of archaeologists are using a 3D laser scanner to capture the features of a long-forgotten city – home to an ancient civilization known as the Minoans. By automating the process, researchers are able to better capture the terrain and prevent measuring mistakes. In Laos, image analysis technology was used to capture areas of deforestation. The work was critical, since the forests are home to one of the last Indochina tiger populations. Trimble products were used in both projects.
