small archaeological pieces to complete buildings) for a wide range
of applications, including:

    Non-contact replication
    Visualisation for museum displays
    Erosion monitoring
    Virtual restoration

This 1-day course provides an introduction to the use of laser
scanning in the heritage field and comprises a series of lectures,
practical demonstrations, case studies and opportunity for
discussion.  It is aimed at all those working within the heritage
field who would like to develop a basic understanding of laser
scanning and its uses, including: museum curators, conservators,
conservation officers, archaeologists, virtual reality providers,
exhibition designers, surveyors and other commissioners of 3D
recording work:

    A basic introduction to the theory of laser scanning
    Different types of laser scanning systems
    Processing of scan data to produce a finished computer model
    Managing scan data and file formats
    How to specify a laser scanning job
    Practical considerations
    Practical applications of laser scan data, including non-contact
