Starting in 2010, the late architectural historian Andrew Tallon used 3-D laser scanning technology and high-resolution panoramic photography to create a near-complete digital record, inside and out, of Notre-Dame of Paris, one of the world’s most celebrated structures. Professor Cook presents an overview of Tallon’s achievement and discusses its contribution to the rebuilding of this beloved cathedral in the wake of the tragic fire of April 2019.
