3D laser scanning or HDS (high definition surveying) is state of the art measurement technology used to create highly detailed and extremely accurate 3D models. A single three and a half minute scan session captures everything visible from a single location in high definition. Complex structures and mechanical systems that would take hours to measure with other methods are measured in seconds by this innovative equipment.
Scanning is built on centuries-old land surveying techniques combined with modern technological advances in lasers, computer processing, and robotics.
3D laser scanning applications include:
- As-Built Surveys/Building Documentation
- Topographic Mapping
- Historical Preservation
- Construction Quality Assurance
