This image shows a 3D data set of Jefferson’s library at Monticello. More than 100 million range samples were acquired with a DeltaSphere-3000 3D scene digitizer along with 1,000 color photos in two evenings during the summer of 2000. The 3D measurements are colored with data from the photos, and then the underlying model is simplified. At the top of the image, the colored model is shown. At the bottom, the color has been turned off, showing the simplified 3D model.
