Laser scanning is a method of obtaining spatial information into a 3D point cloud format, that can be used to view 360° images, take dimensions, and be paired with engineering software to create accurate AutoCAD site models.
• Increased efficiency of engineering by eliminating rework due to missing information
• Higher level of confidence in project planning
• Increased accuracy of site dimensions vs drawings, pictures, and manually pulled dimensions
• Better decisions early in the project lifecyle
3D laser scanning can be used to collect and view the data needed to plan a project in an industrial facility or work site. Laser scans are useful for complicated projects in which there are tight clearances or obstructions, or in locations that are difficult to measure with conventional means. The scanners are also able to collect data in low-light environments like mine shafts and sewer systems.
