Irene - Fal River oyster boat (point cloud)
Point cloud of the Fal River oyster boat ‘Irene’ in National Maritime Museum Cornwall.
The point cloud is a nice way of displaying this boat, as it allows the viewer to see into confined spaces easily, and for those interested in boat building to see more of its construction.
The original point cloud contains many hundreds of millions of measurement points, derived from a full photogrammetric survey. There are some gaps in the point cloud, specifically large areas painted with black and blue gloss paint, which do not respond well to photogrammetry.
‘Irene’ was surveyed in the main gallery of the museum, during regular opening hours, which presented its own challenges.
