A different perspective of the Pom Pom Tree aka a London Plane Tree – laser scanned by Peter Merrett
Peter says ” The colours – The laser scanner records the 3D position of each point it surveys, but it also records the amount of energy returned from each point. This is a measure of it’s reflectivity and in the laser scanning world we call it ‘intensity’. The computer then applies an artificial colour to each different intensity.
You can select different colour ranges.
This also means that you can scan in the dark, but still get the same colour variation which is dependent on how reflective the surface is”
