Charlemagne, Frankfurt am Main
Laser scan of a larger than life-sized statue of Charlemagne
The larger than life-sized statue of Charlemagne was captured
with a handheld laser scanner called T-Scan 2 (Steinbichler
Optotechnik). The projects aim is a faithful copy which will be
produced by Bamberger Natursteinwerk Hermann Graser GmbH. The
measurement of the quite recently restored statue our non-contact
scanning-methods are ideal because of their high resolution.
The original statue will be a highlight in the exhibition of the
Historisches Museum in Frankfurt. The copy will be placed on the
Alte Brücke where the original initially used to be.
