The Alliance For Integrated Spatial Technologies is a Research and Education Support Unit in the School of Geosciences, College of Arts and Sciences, at the University of South Florida. Their goal is to create interdisciplinary approaches to research and curriculum that involves 3D technologies and visualizations. They have particular research interest in preserving and protecting the world’s cultural and natural heritage through education and global engagement.
The AIST used the FARO Focus3D in combination with GPS and photogrammetry to document the house and environs as part of restoration work at the house. This data will be used to develop CAD renderings and visualizations.
