Site DescriptionPointe du Hoc is a promontory with a 100-foot cliff overlooking the English Channel on the northwestern coast of Normandy in the Calvados department, France. During World War II it was the highest point between the American sector landings at Utah Beach to the west and Omaha Beach to the east. The German army fortified the area with concrete casemates and gun pits. On D-Day (June 6, 1944), the United States Army Ranger Assault Group attacked and captured Pointe du Hoc after scaling the cliffs.
Project DescriptionI December 2016, CyArk in collaboration with the The United States Military Academy at West Point documented sites associated with the D-Day landings in Normandy. Terrestrial and aerial photogrammetry and LiDAR laser scanning were deployed to document the the beach point of resistance known as Widerstandsnest 62, The American Normandy Cemetery, and Pointe du Hoc.
