3D Scan creates a digital representation of an observed threedimensional object. The resulting digital object of the observed object has also 3 dimensions i.e. can be handled in with software in a threedimensional coordinate system.
There a different options to create digital 3D object from an observed real world object.
3D Scan with Digital Camera
An ordinary digital camera can be used to create a 3D point cloud of large buildings with multiple images as input and the application of the OpenSource software Regard3D
