The measurement of accurate three-dimensional (3D) shape information for an object is routinely required in many industrial processes. The size of the objects to be measured may vary over a very wide range, from the sub-centimetre to tens of meters. In the context of this work we will define 'small objects' as those that will fit within a one metre cubic volume and 'large objects' as those that are larger than this volume. Techniques for the measurement of relatively small objects are well developed at the moment. The most advanced of these are non-contact optical techniques. However, when applied to relatively large objects, existing techniques face a number of limiting factors, which results in a compromise between the field of view of the sensor and the spatial resolution of the resulting image.
