St. Augustine 450th Commemoration Event invites all to this unique event on March 31, 2102.
Following is the information about the event.
The Spanish Constitution Monument of 1812 is getting a dose of 21st century technology. On Saturday morning the historic icon will be laser scanned with the help of Activision Publishing, a premier developer and publisher of software in the video game industry.
The laser scan will be performed by Chris Ellis, a 3D scan technician at Activision in Los Angeles.
Saturday, March 31, 2012 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Plaza de la Constitución in downtown St. Augustine
It is believed that the St. Augustine Constitution Monument is the only remaining one in the world. This project will be the first step in accomplishing one of the seven legacy projects for the St. Augustine 450th Commemoration, which in 2015 will mark the anniversary of the founding of America’s First City. Full-scale replicas of the Constitution Monument will be crated for shipment to Cadiz, Spain, the city where the original Spanish Constitution was signed; Aviles, Spain, St. Augustine’s sister city; and Miami, Florida, where the monument will be held in trust until democracy returns to Cuba, at which time Miami will re-gift the monument to Havana. Learn more about the Constitution Monument.
Anyone interested in viewing the Constitution Monument scan is welcome. Ellis will be available to answer questions about the equipment, the scanning process, and his work at Activision. City of St. Augustine representatives will be available to answer questions about the Constitution Monument. If weather is a problem, then the scan will take place on Sunday, April 1, 2012.
