Students and researchers at the University of Iowa are using the same laser scanning technology that mapped Notre Dame to document Iowa landmarks, reports the Des Moines Register. UI professor and geographic information systems (GIS) analyst Adam Skibbe is leading students in laser-mapping landmarks such as Kinnick Stadium and the Maquoketa Caves using the LiDAR method, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging. The data creates a 3D map that is accurate within millimeters, Skibbe said. The technology had been used by the late Andrew Tallon, a world-renowned art historian who created detailed scans of more than 45 buildings, including the Notre Dame, which UI professor of art history Robert Bork used to study how the cathedral was built.
