Pushing Scans to the limit
Royal Palm Square in Fort Myers FL
Over the holiday weekend (new years eve & day) I decided to scan the shopping center where my office is located. I figured no one would be there and I could knock it out in no time. Well the project ended up taking me 5 hours the 1st day and 3 hours the next. When it was all said and done I ended up with 258 scans. The sun was the main reason why I had to come back the 2nd day even though I started at 7am. Another time consuming task was boxing the whole project within windows. I tried to get away with not doing it the first time I uploaded the project but there were flairs of office space and landscaping that made it look ugly. In terms of scanning I moved every 5 to 8 feet and in post just hid 58 scan points to bring the number back down to the recommended 200. As far as I can tell it's not glitchy for such a large project.
