The world of historical preservation and documenting heritage architecture has been reshaped with the mainstream use of 3d laser scanning. This fact has been showcased in the recent series Time Scanners which is currently airing on NatGeo in the UK. There are also organizations such as CyArk whose primary purpose is to document sites with historical significance, mainly through the use of 3d laser scanning.
