3D Laser Scanning
As-built or existing conditions surveys can sometimes be the most difficult and the most time consuming due to the large volume of data to acquire. Laser scanning has the ability to gather vast amounts of data in a very short period of time. Data can be acquired in three dimensions in a 360 degree by 270 degree field of view at the rate of 40,000 points per second. Projects which typically would take days utilizing conventional technology can now be completed in hours and at greater accuracy.
Scanners utilize two types of technologies, phase pulse scanners locate items in close proximity to the unit while time of flight scanners are better for items at longer distances. LandTech utilizes a Leica ScanStation C10 which is a hybrid scanner that utilizes both technologies and automatically chooses the best methodology to complete the project.
The ability to utilize laser scanning reduces cost and minimizes disruption to other parties. With a range of up to 300 meters, scanning can be completed in great detail without the need for any personnel to enter harms way. Intersections, highways and railroads can be scanned without entering the travel way. Utilities, restricted areas and historical sites can be scanned without entering the area. Bridges and building facades can be scanned while safely standing on the ground, all at high degrees of detail and in three dimensions.
And thats only the beginning. The benefits of laser scanning and its applications continues to grow. The scanner utilized by LTC takes digital images of its surroundings while scanning allowing the digital image to be matched with the scan to give a true view of the existing conditions and eliminating call backs to gather additional information. Three dimensional modeling and fly thru movies can be created to emphasize key areas. Building Information Modeling (BIM) can be accomplished with interior scans of building and equipment layouts and infrastructure.
