LandTech Consultants Completes 3D Laser Scan of Granite Quarry
LandTech Consultants recently completed a High Definition 3D Laser Scan of one of the oldest operating granite quarries in the country. The scan was completed over the course of a single day and incorporated multiple levels of the working quarry.
Utilizing a Leica ScanStation C10 LandTech was able to complete the project conducting several high definition scans of the face of the quarry and then bringing the scans together to form a single irregular surface. Scan control points were tied into the Massachusetts State Plane Coordinate System and the NGVD of 1988 utilizing GPS. LandTech will return to the quarry at specified intervals to rescan the quarry in areas of granite removal so that accurate material volumes can be calculated.
The utilization of laser scanning allows for calculation of much more accurate volumes over traditional methods much faster and at a safer distance for survey personnel while not impeding the ongoing removal process.
The owners of the quarry were so impressed with the results LandTech was recently hired to scan a second quarry and monitor material removal from that one as well.
LandTech Consultants utilizes 3D Laser Scanning for a multitude of existing conditions surveys including intersections, bridges, roadways, buildings (including Building Information Modeling), volume documentation, railroads and ALTA surveys among others.
