Advantages of 3D Laser Scanning Surveying Service

Posted by Calvada on September 5th, 2016

3D Laser scanners have become an essential tool for land surveyors. Professional surveyors are using the technology to improve the data collection and outcomes of the project. 3D laser scanners do more than just measure the vast distances involved and gather accurate information of the site. They have also emerged as a solution to various challenges that surveyors have encountered for years. With laser scanners, they can do they can identify the root cause of any issue and discuss it with their clients with for possible outcomes and suitable solution. 

Some advantages of the 3D laser scanners are explained here. 

Cuts Down Field Time: Mapping a large property can be highly expensive as well as time-consuming. Both time and cost correlated. 3D laser scanners are fast and accurate, allowing surveyors to stay within the budget and complete the mapping in less time. It enables them to focus more on data analysis instead of data collection. 3D laser scanners are also used to create 3D models which can be shown to clients in search of a solution to an issue.

Versatility: 3D laser scanners come in many varieties and platforms so that the surveyors can use them according to the nature of the job. Surveyors can also perform aerial mapping and mobile laser scanning which gives them more flexibility and a chance to work around obstacles.

Accuracy in Reconstructing Spaces: 3D laser scanners measure the dimensions of each space with high accuracy reducing the margin of error as much as possible. Digital models created with the data from laser scanners are highly accurate and represents the true condition of the space. When surveyors discuss and show their models to the clients, the importance of the accurate representation of the data becomes apparent. This is particularly useful in situations where they need to find a solution to topographical problems. It allows them to have pin-point accuracy and data at their fingertips.

Precise Data for Realistic Drawings: With the help of latest software the accurate data collected by the laser scanners can be used to create 3D or regular maps. 3D laser scanners can be considered as the key to highly precise realistic drawings and models.

Low Impact of Surveyor Shortage: 3D laser scanners also solve the problem of surveyor shortage as surveyors are able to work on multiple projects at once with it. Laser scanners are fast and accurate and that lowers the workload of surveyors. With these state of the art surveying tools, surveyors have to spend less time on each project, dramatically increasing their productivity.
