3D Modelling of Historic Topographic Equipment

The department of Geography owns a wide collection of historic topographic equipment (tellurometers, theodolites, geodimeters, …). These artefacts are used in exhibitions to show the rich history of land surveying and geomatics. The 3D data research group has begun with the construction of 3D models of these historic artefacts. The 3D models have an added value towards archiving purposes and they will be used to create a virtual museum that can be accessed by the general public.
