Sharing: more Claude Ledoux, Quai Vauban & Besancon

Theatre (Besancon) Nicolas Claude Ledoux 1784

Here are some screen shots of the point cloud depicting the theater in Besancon designed by Ledoux in the 18th century.

Point Cloud of Theater

This was created with a few “snap shots” of the building taken from the street.

Photos used to create point cloud

In order to capture roof elements and such additional photos would be necessary. As a “piece” of the street however, it can be assembled along with additional scans to create a larger whole.

A few more screen shots from a separate locations in Bescanson, across form the Prefecture:

New Header

I’m posting a new header for this blog. It’s a composite image of half of the Quai Vauban facing the river Doubs in Besancon, France.  It’s an accurate assembly of a couple dozen images that are each rectified to a known plane/scale.  Here is a detail showing the resolution of the image. We are hoping to see this printed full size and used as a mural somewhere in Charlottesville – a sister city to Besancon.
