Benefits of 3D Laser Scanning Services for Land Survey

Jun 19th 2015 at 5:15 AM

Over the past decades engineers had to face certain land surveying issues such as natural feature surveying and underground surveying. Using the previous method of surveying, engineers have had a hard time showcasing such features in their surveys. On the other hand, even though they may have wanted to showcase such features, due to the limitations of their equipment and technology they were unable to exhibit such features.

However, with the use of modern 3D scanning technology engineers and field surveyors can now not only survey boundaries but they can also present a 3 dimensional display of the property. With this technology they can have a real life 3 dimensional visual presentation of the area being surveyed. Aside from that there are other benefits as well. Here are some of the benefits obtained by using 3D laser scanning technology.

Benefits of using 3D scanning services.

Cut down field work—by using 3D laser scanners, surveyors can save a lot of time as laser scanners can be automatically programmed and are efficient scanners. They can cut field work time by as much as 60%. In terms of cost efficiency and practicality, these machines are well worth the investment.

Accurate—laser scanners are more accurate than previous surveying machines. Because laser scanners can objectively measure space it can precisely measure every angle and curve. This enables the laser scanner to produce 3D models that are very accurate and detailed.

Versatile—Laser scanners come in a variety of models which come in different capabilities. Some models are even capable of taking areal mapping. Some laser scanners are even capable of measuring different obstacles which cannot be scanned by ordinary surveying equipment.

Requires lesser man power—because this type of equipment are very easy to operate, it requires lesser man power. It can even be operated by a single person. In the past few years, the demand for surveyors has increased yet the number of surveyors has continued to decline. This is another advantage of 3D scanning as it can compensate for the lack of man power.

3D scanning is fast, efficient and it requires lesser man power. Availing such service can do wonders for you or your company. It saves you time, money and resources. Aside from that, it can provide you with a 3D visual presentation which can be used in planning, design and construction. Contact us to find out more about our 3D scanning services.
