Description

Historical remains are a reminder of what our society used to be and it is our responsibility to preserve them so their significance will not be forgotten. Our service-learning Senior Project consisted in scanning the old and deteriorated Stewart House in Portal, Georgia, using a laser-based scanner to produce a virtual, three-dimensional, point-cloud model of it. The home, established in 1908, was the residence of the principal medical professional of Portal, James Stewart, until the 1950’s. The final model was presented to graduate student LynDee Winterton, who completed her Master’s Project around it to assist the Portal Heritage Society in its preservation efforts. This organization would now be equipped to restore the home and reopen it to the public as a museum. This project gave our Civil Engineering and Construction team an opportunity to assist our community in a service learning format and great understanding of the laser scanning techniques.
