How 3D Surveying Helps Architects and Building Constructors to Accurately Survey

Posted by Calvada on November 1st, 2017

Measured surveys are made more accurate and efficient with the help of 3D laser scanning technology. Now the must-have tool for architects, designers, and land surveyors, high definition scanners ensure precision like no other scanning technology can, helping architects produce drawings that are of premier quality and accuracy.

3D surveying is one of the best ways of capturing physical objects and/or their actual world environments in efficiently recorded 3-dimensional data. With this kind of technology, it is possible to capture data of external and internal objects in great detail. The most efficient way to collect required field data, companies that support and offer 3D surveying services maintain the quality of their work as they adhere to standards set by industry authorities pertaining to the precision, accuracy, and reliability of the measured data. This pinpoint accuracy also allows designers and architects to pick-up on positional errors between data.

The benefits of using 3D technology for survey tasks are endless. From an architectural view point, data precision guarantees top quality drawings and designs. 3D surveying likewise allows for reduced field costs despite the complex technologies involved in the process. While 3D surveys do require more advanced devices and equipment, these tools are designed for quick and easy use in the field, with no need for complex calibrations, thus streamlining the process while maintaining its peerless accuracy. The technologies used in 3D surveys are also extremely versatile, allowing for other forms of survey methods like aerial mapping and even mobile laser scanning. This means greater flexibility and versatility for surveyors who would often have a hard time working around obstacles in measuring properties using their old tools. Highly precise data results in highly accurate and realistic drawings and models that best represent the project site or the proposed design for the given project.
