Scanning Christ the Redeemer!

Post by MatthewBester »

Geospatial mapping specialist GeoSLAM has produced a never-before-seen digital twin of the inside of the world-famous Chris the Redeemer statue before its 90th birthday restoration work begins.
Now, for the very first time, the historic statue built in 1931, can be viewed from the inside and out, using the latest SLAM (simultaneous localisation and mapping) and UAV technology.
To complete the scan, the summit of Mount Corcovado was closed to the public, allowing GeoSLAM’s Latin America Channel Manager, Gabriel de Barros Praxedes, and a small team from CPE Tecnologia, GeoSLAM’s Brazilian dealer, to scan the entire site – inside and out - within 45 minutes using the ZEB Horizon.
Emblematic of the city of Rio de Janeiro and the nation of Brazil, the concrete-clad statue stands 98 feet tall and spans a mammoth 92 feet wide.
The narrow staircases and tight internal passages were captured by the versatile ZEB Horizon, which emits 300,000 laser points per second as Gabriel climbed the stairs. The same ZEB Horizon was then mounted to a UAV to capture the full, detailed exterior of the monument.
A series of 3D scans containing over 180million points were captured, producing a comprehensive digital model of the giant monument in all its glory inside and out.
The data was then quickly processed through GeoSLAM Hub, so Gabriel could see the results of the scan before he left the site, including the network of internal staircases..
GeoSLAM’s solutions are being used more and more to aid in the documenting and management of historic or hard-to-reach landmarks.
