Raw data is shown in the lower left corner, the color is collected at 12 bits per color (but usually reduced to 8 bits per color) and the range data is at 2 bytes per pixel. The range file of the vase here appears unfolded due to the rotation of the object while digitizing. A coordinate transform is applied to this file in order to reconstruct a view of the vase. In yellow is show the reconstructed data points, in red we have a wire mesh reconstruction using a subsample of the range file, in white a surface model from all the data points and, the next views show the color mapping of the raw data and a synthetic view using illumination from the right side, respectively.
