SPAR3D: OpenSpace harnesses AI to streamline 3D construction documentation

The data may only be collected once or a handful of times, and the captures can be infrequent and expensive.
With the growth in availability of 3D scanning for this type of documentation, it is possible to have a more complete record than photographs- but it can still require a significant amount of time and expertise to capture. The necessity of needing a professional come in with expensive equipment to do it still means that there may be long gaps in between captures, however.
