Laser Scanning

During a laser scanning trip to capture several Mid-Century structures in La Mesa, California, we visited the La Mesa Historical Society.  The society is located in the 1908 McKinney House which is a period furnished (1908-1920) museum and that is a 110-year-old pine tree!  In addition to the period furnished McKinney House, the La Mesa Historical Society holds an expansive archive addressing the full breadth of La Mesa’s heritage.

Be certain to click the POINT CLOUD tab atop this page to experience the Potree feature where you can maneuver the McKinney House point cloud.

ChronoPoints would like to thank the La Mesa Historical Society for their permission to scan.


A few tools that will enable you to enhance the point cloud based on your computer’s performance.  Everyone should increase the POINT BUDGET all the way to the right.  If you are on a computer with good graphics, select HIGH QUALITY for the splat quality. You can rotate the point cloud with your mouse.
