3D LASER SCANNING

Digital Surveys provide a comprehensive data capture service using the latest 3D laser scanning and LiDAR technology to carry out point cloud surveys. This allows us to virtually map everything from large scale city models to very small industrial components.

We can utilise a range of 3D laser scanners each with different capabilities, ranges, speed durability and accuracies. When an item or site is scanned, a very accurate 3D data set known as a point cloud is generated.


A point cloud is made up of millions of points of data each with a 3D value in space. Most scanners also record the reflectivity of a surfaces generating an intensity value and many now also have inbuilt cameras to apply colour in the form of an rgb value to each point.

Laser scanning is rapidly replacing traditional survey methods due to its fast data capture rates and superior accuracy.

Scanning Services

HAND HELD SCANNING
Items from the size of a coin up to a small car can be scanned with our handheld self positioning devices.

Hand held scanners provide the flexibility to get in to awkward spaces with high resolution and sub millimetre accuracy.

MOBILE
Mobile laser scanning provides fast data collection over large areas of land or water.

A mobile system using GPS positioning system and inertial measurement allows scan data to be accurately captured at up to 50 miles per hour.

TERRESTRIAL
Using a tripod mounted system similar to a traditional survey device, large-scale buildings and infrastructure assets can be captured in 3D quickly and efficiently.

A typical scan can capture up to 990,000 points per second at ranges of up to 180m.
