     Includes ASTM E2544 - 10: definitions

• How Stuff Works: the principals of measurement with laser scanning and photogrammetry expressed in lay terms

Our aim with this Wiki is to help to define and codify key terminology in the laser scanning and 3D imaging marketplace and industry. People, places, companies, terms, technologies, products, and more will be defined here with input from experts throughout the industry. Please note that the ASTM Terminology entries we have licensed may not be edited directly on this site. Editing ASTM terminology is achieved through balloting procedures by ASTM members.
