Hand Held 3D Laser Mapping System Used to Explore Aboriginal Caves

ZEB1, the world’s first truly mobile handheld rapid laser mapping system has been used to explore Aboriginal cave markings in South Australia. The strange markings, called finger flutings, were thought to have been left in the Koonalda Cave between about 30,000 and 10,000 years ago. Created by hands being dragged along established grooves in the soft limestone walls the markings are extremely fragile and crumble at the slightest touch.
Koonalda Cave is closed to the public and is accessible by permit only.  A product video can be viewed here:
