Laser Scanning and Point Clouds

Laser Scanning uses the latest technology to accurately and efficiently capture full 3D spatial data sets, of any subject.

The point cloud data acquired can be transformed and utilised in a wide range of sectors, and potential applications such as:

  • Civil and Structural Engineering
  • Heritage
  • Architectural
  • Measured Building Survey
  • Topographical Surveys
  • 3D BIM / REVIT Modelling
  • Crime Scene Analysis
  • Clash Detection
  • Asset Management
  • Volumetric Analysis
  • Deformation and Erosion Monitoring

True colour photographs mapped onto data, enhances sense of realism.

Rapid point cloud data collection allows for less disruption whilst on site, and in turn allows downtime to be minimised. This is especially practical during ‘small windows of opportunity’ such as tidal conditions, or during adverse weather.

Without the need to physically occupy a point, there are major Health and Safety benefits in hazardous areas, where measurements can be taken from remote locations. Equally, previously inaccessible areas can now be surveyed.

Integration with Client needs and requirements allows for a completed dataset to be created during initial site visits. This cuts down on costly re-visits, and can accommodate expansion of brief as client project develops.
