Advantages of Laser Scanning

Through the use of the laser scanner for these projects we have found many advantages over our previous methods, these include:

  • A higher level of accuracy and a much higher output of data (the scanner we use can measure over 20,000 points a second!)
  • Less time spent on site, however due to the huge pointclouds generated from the scanner more office time is required to deal with the huge amounts of data.
  • Ability to measure extremely detailed building features to a very high accuracy. Some of which are so intricate that we simply would not have been able to measure accuractely using conventional methods.
  • A more accurate and impressive end result as the data can be seen and processed as a complete 3D model.
