3D Laser Scanning, also known as High Definition Surveying, is an exciting new technology that is blazing its way into the surveying, architecture, civil engineering, construction…..you name it….industries. Its uses are: archeology and heritage, facililcy asset, athletic fields, building redesign and repurposing, construction assessment, facilities analyses, forensic investigation, utility management and 2D to 3D or 3D to BIM conversion.
And now Land Grant Surveyors can help you discover how 3D Laser Scanning can work for you with our new Leica Scan Station 2.
What does 3D Laser Scanning mean to you?
Cost savings – New semi-phased laser technology allows LGS’s Leica Scan Station 2 to record a single point in a matter of nanoseconds, with a result of 50,000 points a second. And that adds up to COMPLETE site survey in a fraction of time to traditional survey methods.
Accuracy – With the Scan Station 2, LGS can place every single point in a scan to an accuracy of less than six millimeters.
Completeness – A major advantage of High Definition Survey scanning is the level complete site recordation. EVERYTHING in viewable range is data. Which means much less need for multiple site visits for re-shoots, additional shoots, or investigation. With coordinated digital photographs with the data, everything you need is at your fingertips.
Workability – All data is fully functional within any CAD or Building Information Modeling environment, and can be easily coordinated with needed location dataset.
So, what can LGS do for you? – we can provide a time effective way to acquire not-before-seen precision and realism in site inventory data, in a cost saving, highly accurate manner.
