Digital Historic Preservation: Recording and Interpreting the Patterson-Altman’s Mill with 3-D Scanning
Author(s): Sarah J La Fevre
The purpose of this study is to compare the traditional recording as conducted by the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) with modern 3-D scanning, focusing on the Patterson-Altman Mill located in Saltsburg, PA. The Patterson-Altman Mill was originally built in 1912 and recorded by HAER in 1987 (HAER No. PA-110), and is currently featured on the Preservation Pennsylvania at Risk 2013/14 and Preservation National 2014 list. This study will use the image data collected from a 3- D Leica Scan Station C10 to determine if the use of the 3-D scanner is more effective than the methods previously used by HAER. This study will endeavor to record the entirety of the building to create a record of the mill in case the building is not restored. It will also analyze the mill’s current state and its historical integrity to determine how the milling process occurred during its time of operation.
