The creation of three-dimensional virtual models by optical technologies typically involve uncontrolled metric errors, in particular, when small high-resolution 3-D imaging systems are used to reconstruct a large object. Within Cultural Heritage, the problem of metric accuracy is a major issue and no methods are currently available for controlling and enhancing it. This paper presents a methodology based on the integration of a 3D range camera system with an optical tracking technique. The basic idea is the generation of a global coordinate system determined by the optical tracker, which controls the rigid motions of the 3D range camera system during multi-scan processes. The tracking process is based on measuring the spatial coordinates of reference markers located onto the range camera. The metric reliability of the 3D model reconstruction is guaranteed to a known acceptable level. Experimental results on a Statue of Hope located at the English Cemetery in Florence, are also reported.
