Scanned with a Riegl VZ400 Scanner using markers and 6D SLAM. The raw scan data is available here.

I can also recommend his book 3D Robotic Mapping, which provides good coverage of the state of the art for 3D mapping.

Oh you want source code? Well, you can find it here. It even comes with a GPL license.

I wonder if I could find someone who would let me take apart a Riegl VZ400 Scanner.

That's pretty nutty. Assuming a company like Google did a worldwide scan ala Streetview, imagine the possibilities!

The next step would be to imagine if you had scans that detailed of the inside of every building in every city on the planet.
