We review 20 years of development in the field of 3-D laser imaging. An overview of 3-D digitizing techniques is presented with an emphasis on commercial techniques and systems currently available. It covers some of the most important methods that have been developed, both at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and elsewhere, with a focus on commercial systems that are considered good representations of the key technologies that have survived the test of years. © 2004 SPIE and IS&T.
