WHAT IS A LASER SCAN SURVEY?
The data captured by a laser scanner is known as a point cloud and, depending on the site, can contain billions of 3D points.
The point cloud is a very rich data set and can be used to create CAD drawings and construct 3D models for a wide variety of purposes. Point cloud can be used for retrofit and refurbishment projects, brownfield and greenfield new development, building safety and as-built surveys prior to handover.
We also have the capability to apply realistic colour to the point cloud from our panoramic imaging cameras, further enriching the data set and producing a highly realistic visualisation of the site.
Collecting millions of points in a matter of seconds has proven to be pretty handy to surveyors, as well as being highly beneficial to our clients.
Saving time on site and returning to the office with a detailed point cloud reduces the likelihood of costly site revisits and speeds up the turnaround of detailed surveys for your project. Clever stuff!
