The Rushmore project was just presented at this week's 2010 Leica Geosystems HDS Worldwide User Conference. Except for the Scottish weather in California, an excellent event.

There are a few people that need to be acknowledged for their effort in the documentation of the Rushmore Monument, in particular:

Jared Benjamin
Alastair Rawlinson
(in particular for lugging a C-10 down from the mountain)
Lynn Wilson
Chris McGregor
Maureen Young

CyArk Foundation
Elizabeth Lee
‘JJ’ Barton
Kristina Sturm

Respec Engineering
Rich Barry
Randy Deilbert
Vicki Franzen
Chris Larive
Cody Vining

Leica Geosystems
Michael Harvey

Hexagon Metrology
Chris Jundt

...and of course the staff at Rushmore and US National Park Technical Ropes Team.
