The Great Wall of China Being Captured in 3D

The goal of this project is to protect, document and promote the Great Wall of China to the world. To this end, 3 years will be dedicated to create the whole 6,000km length of the Great Wall of China and its surroundings in 3D, in high resolution.

Thanks to its Chinese reseller IFA Tech, Acute3D’s Smart3DCapture solution has been chosen for the automatic 3D reconstruction part, which will be combined with ground imagery and laser scanning. Using Smart3DCapture, Redbird Helicopter Surveying Technology has already produced a part of the Great Wall of China in 3D from images taken by helicopter.

“Mapping such an incredible man-built structure, long enough to be visible from space, dating back so many centuries, is a project which embodies the ability of the human beings to use progress to better understand their History and preserve its heritage,” said Renaud Keriven, presiden and CTO at Acute3D. “At Acute3D, we are working very hard to deliver best-in-class solutions which support this amazing enterprise and more generally the reconstruction of many cultural heritage objects and masterpieces around the World.”
