3D laser scanning uses LiDAR technology to accurately and efficiently capture three-dimensional data and reduces project delivery times by removing the need to shutdown infrastructure such as plants, rail and roadways. It also reduces associated labour costs and disruption to sites, intersections and restricted areas.
3D laser scanning creates clear and precise digital records without physically touching the structure being measured. Millions of measurement points, or ‘coordinates’ generate data that provides an exact measurement from and to any one point. It also produces high quality imagery via 3D visualisation techniques to market your project.
The scanning can be used to capture real world information, including construction verification, design engineering for upgrades and expansions, 2D and 3D building mapping, prefabrication, architectural documentation and collection of geospatial data.
Benefits of 3D laser scanning include gathering fast, rich details of every aspect of a project. It is also highly accurate. Individual measurements acquired manually are subject to errors, however laser scanning is the most accurate form of measurement available, delivering results within millimetres or less.
3D laser scanning reduces costs and captures extra data, eliminating the need to continually return to the project and minimises shutdown times and can obtain measurements in hazardous locations while keeping workers safe.
