This magnificent structure from the early 19th century is one of Paris’ defining landmarks. It measures 50m high x 45m wide x 22m deep (164′ x 148′ x 72′). In other words, it’s HUGE!
And gorgeously detailed.
Almost five years ago I shot a series of images of this structure with the intention of creating a high density point cloud and 3D model of the arch -but I’ve had to wait until his year to have the wherewithal required to do so. Here are some snap shots of the model…
Mind you, I calculated this model relatively “low res”. The model is an “overview” and any individual portion can be scanned at higher resolution.
Photographs were shot using a 40mm lens on a full frame digital SLR body.
