The latest in a long sequence of Robin Hood movies is out. I used to watch the tv show (the old one from the 50s with that memorable theme song, not the recent British series) when I was a kid, but I can't really say I am an afficionado of the movie genre. (Although, I am sympathetic with taking from the rich and giving to the poor.)
The Nottingham Caves Survey is the first part of the Caves of Nottingham Regeneration Project (CoNoRP). This is a two-and-a-half year project funded by the Greater Nottingham Partnership, East Midlands Development Agency, English Heritage, the University of Nottingham and Nottingham City Council. The project intends to take a fresh look at Nottingham’s caves and encourage the City and its visitors to appreciate the caves for the unique historical resource they are. The Nottingham Caves Survey will build on the work of British Geological Survey in the 1980s. The BGS Register of Caves documented all known caves in Nottingham. We will revisit all caves listed in the Register and update the information about those caves. All caves that can be physically accessed will be surveyed with a 3D laser scanner, producing a full measured record of the caves in three dimensions. This ‘point cloud’ of millions of individual survey points can be cut and sliced into plans and sections, ‘flown through’ in short videos, and examined in great detail either on the web through the TruView Internet Explorer plug-in or on a fixed PC with suitable software.
The graphics are really nice. Here is an example:
Maybe the Hood was hiding in there somewhere?
