3D Scanning Rosedown

03 October 2021


Rosedown Plantation

After a summer of laser scanning and drone photogrammetry, we have recorded Rosedown Plantation and its grounds as a set of point clouds. In September we presented our work 3D scanning the plantation at the Southeast Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians’ annual conference (SESAH 2021) in Natchez, Mississippi. Our server with Potree point cloud viewers is live. Check out the rockery, interior, formal gardens, allée, and landscape.
