The key to rebuilding Notre after a devastating fire can rely on a digital copy of the perfect mapping created using laser technology.

Through the combination of laser technology and digital photography, every detail of Paris's Notre Cathedral was successfully and painstakingly captured.
Using more than 1 billion points of data, Talon is able to bring the cathedral to life, the most accurate architectural rendering ever.
Specifically, Tallon uses a rotating laser machine to measure the exact 3-
D. Specifications inside and outside the church, covering more than 50 locations.
He then used a panoramic photo of the same location of the laser mapping to cover the aesthetic details, which allowed Talon to stitch together not only the exact size, but also the exact physical appearance of the replicas.
Talon is not the first person to use laser technology to map medieval buildings, but as far as Notre is concerned, he is by far the most successful person.
According to a report from National Geographic, previous attempts to capture the cathedral with digital replicas resulted in the fact that researchers machines were smoking upwards.
Perhaps the most groundbreaking result of Talon's work is that it not only creates a building in the present, but also how it changes over time.
Structures, especially old ones, tend to change as they grow older due to weather or other factors in the original building.
By capturing this change with unparalleled precision, Taron's analysis of the evolution of the building has also proved to be a key tool for revealing the original construction method of the building, many of which are long-term
According to National Geographic, which includes shortcuts to some previously unknown cathedral builders who actually cover up their mistakes by building around previous works.
Therefore, the internal pillars of the building are not aligned and the aisles are not aligned, the report said.
While Tallon's scans may be of great help in future reconstruction of severely damaged sites, the work will be a monumental one.
Because the entire framework of 850year-
The old building was made of wood of about 1,300 trees, and the fire quickly accelerated, with disastrous consequences.
Officials said yesterday that the roof of the 12th-century cathedral was "empty.
Support for the people of Paris and future reconstruction efforts will not be hurt.
World leaders, including billionaires from Japan, Greece and France, have pledged to contribute to reconstruction.
