Ostia Antica, Italy

Using the Optech ILRIS-3D laser scanner and the Konica-Minolta VIVID 9i, data was collected in 2007 as part of the Ostia Antica 3D Scanning Project.

Several data sets from the Ostia Antica survey are available here as point clouds in the Polyworks PWK format (as IMInspect projects).

For the PWK formats we recommend using the free Polyworks | Viewer (previously the Polyworks IM Viewer), and for the obj files we recommend Rapidform Geomagic Verify Viewer (previously the Rapidform Explorer).
To open a PWZIP file – click on the .pwzip link below and save the file; if you are using Mozilla Firefox, right click on the link and save the file.  Open IMView, left click on “File” at the top of the screen.  Select “Open project”, then “Add Workspace” and browse to the .pwzip’s saved location.  Next, choose a local location to extract the files.  The files will unzip and the project will appear in IMView’s workspace file structure.  Left click on the project and open.
