This article focuses on the results obtained from the laser scanning recording of the Long Meg standing stone (NY56933716, CCSMR6154, NMR 23663) (Cumbria). This recording is result of the project “Breaking through rock art recording: three dimensional laser scanning of megalithic rock art”, led by Margarita Díaz-Andreu and sponsored by the AHRC under the Innovation Awards scheme, aimed to explore the potential of this novel technique. In this article two different methods to visualise the rock art data are compared: one using freely available software, and the other one employing software especially developed for archaeology.
