2014 Reality Capture Summer Technology Camp
July 12-19, 2014 at History Park in San Jose.

Our Summer Project, The Santa Ana School House

This past July, the Reality Capture Technology Training Center hosted its first week long technology camp.
We welcomed students ranging from 11th grade through graduate school to assist us in the digital documentation of the historic Santa Ana One Room School House on the campus of History Park.

This first time program provided a great opportunity for students to not only plan the process, but also use the latest laser scanning technology to complete the digital documentation.

I've attached some stills from the documentation process completed by the students.
