Background
Site DescriptionLaunch Complex 34 of the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) was constructed between June 1959 and February 1961, and is associated with the Saturn 1 and Saturn 1B missile test flights and two Apollo manned program launches. The manned mission launches include the tragic Apollo 1 fire that claimed the lives of three astronauts during a countdown rehearsal. Later, the successful Apollo 7 mission originated from this same complex. The site was deactivated in November of 1971, and two years later it was abandoned in place. Today the complex serves as a memorial to the Apollo 1 tragedy and is part of a National Historic Landmark District designation along with several historic Launch Complex facilities located on the CCAFS.
Project DescriptionWorking in collaboration with the 45th Space Wing of the United States Air Force, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS), this digital survey and documentation was undertaken by USF's Digital Heritage and Humanities Collections group in the USF Libraries (Principal Investigators: Drs. Lori Collins and Travis Doering), to provide continuing baseline terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) survey, monitoring, and spatial recording for selected historic launch complexes. Targeted structures were chosen for ongoing assessment and 3D laser scan survey, and these data were brought together with aerial Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications in a digital platform for landscape and structure consideration. The project was performed in combination with Global Positioning Systems (GPS), videography, and imaging documentation, with the 3D terrestrial laser scanning providing the referent data for the derived 3D Computer Assisted Drawing (CAD) products and archival as-is conditional reference.
