3D Laser Scanning

Typical equipment relies on a two man crew to collect information one point at a time. This is a highly effective and accurate method to obtain point information. An efficient crew can collect hundreds of points per day.

With the use of our 3D laser scanning equipment we collect up to 50,000 points per second rather than hundreds per day. This results in high definition quality information in a fraction of the time of conventional equipment. This method provides a "point cloud" of three dimensional information that can be imported to our Autocad® software to create engineering design or as-built plans.

3D scan
The image above is an example of information collected with our 3D laser scanner. This is a pool project in an environmentally sensitive area adjacent to wetlands and the North River. The local Conservation Commission required an as-built plan for this project. The image was collected utilizing 3D laser scanning showing the pool, cabana, decking, fencing, walkways and landscaping in relation to this home and wetland area.

Below is a sampling of projects which included the use of the 3D Laser Scanner:
