Digital Lion Shrine 5

Reflective reference points are seen here adhered to various points on the Nittany Lion statue at the Lion Shrine on Tuesday, Sept. 22, as the Lion undergoes digital modeling using lasers and metrology equipment. The statue is receiving the treatment to create a digital image that could be used to reconstruct the statue if it becomes damaged. Around a dozen such reference points were placed on the campus icon, allowing measurement specialists, called metrologists, to place their equipment at different points around the statue to construct a complete detailed digital recreation of the Lion.
