Digital Lion Shrine 7

Digital Lion Shrine 7

Metrologist Kyle Herr examines parts of the Nittany Lion Shrine statue that he scanned with a digital scanning laser. Herr, of engineering measurement firm Survice Metrology, was one of two measurement specialists to conduct the procedure, which took place between Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 22-23. The three-dimensional measurements will allow reconstruction or recreation of the statue, a gift of the Class of 1940, in the event of damage.
