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.
