LiDAR meets Art

An interesting 3D art project using point clouds of the 3D Spatial Data Processing research group of Prof. Bernhard Höfle (3DGeo) was recently realized by artist Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann. The data were acquired from natural karst cave features in the Dechen Cave near Iserlohn, Germany both with a low-cost Kinect sensor and terrestrial LiDAR.
For the art [...]
