Product Description


A celebration of some of the most beautiful and striking 3D scans from around the world

In the last decade point cloud datasets, created through laser scanning, have revolutionised the way we document in three dimensions. But a surprising bi-product of this fascinating new technology are the extraordinarily beautiful images created as part of the process.

Art of the Point Cloud is the first book to collect the very best in point cloud imagery from across the globe. Contributions come from Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, India, Japan, USA, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England, amongst others.

Readers will not only find the full colour images hugely appealing but will also be intrigued by the vast range of subject matter it is possible to scan, from historic sites, topography, architecture and interiors to plants, machines, objects, animals and even people.

Art of the Point CloudReview by Anna Heinrich & Leon Palmer
We have just received our copy of Art of the Point Cloud which is a visually stunning and intriguing journey through the extraordinary renderings of 3D spaces, objects, architectures and landscapes achieved through various forms of digital scanning technologies such as LiDAR. The book is beautifully printed and the images, in particular the unique qualities of light and material that point clouds can express, are fully displayed and are the stars of the publication.

Layout is beautifully minimal, and not overwhelmed by text . The range of imagery is captivating and the perspectives and projections that this very contemporary form of 'photography' is capable of is evident in the colour plates (Posted on 22/06/2018)
