High definition laser scanners are now the premier choice of measurement tools for land surveys. Professionals around the world turn to this advanced technology to improve the quality and accuracy of data collection and enhance overall projectoutcomes. More than being an efficient tool for measuring vast distances and gathering information on as-is conditions, 3D technology also offers unique solutions to the challenges land surveyors have been faced with for years. The following are only some of the major advantages of using high definition scanners for land surveying:
• They help cut field time short. Mapping spaces and properties the traditional way takes a considerable amount of time, labor, and, in turn, money, whereas 3D technology offers a fast and accurate means of measurement that greatly reduces field time and prevents errors, which force surveyors to re-work spaces. This also allows survey professionals to concentrate better on analyzing the data instead of worrying too much about the data collection process.
• High definition scanning technology also offers extreme versatility as it comes in a wide variety of types and platforms. This enables survey professionals to select among a range of tools that can best do the job right, ranging from areal mapping to standard laser and mobile laser scanning, which allow for greater flexibility for surveyors who often struggle to work around many different obstacles when measuring properties.
• 3D scanning technology enables accurate reconstruction of spaces, unlike any traditional measuring technique can. Results from high definition scanning are so objective and accurate that every angle of the space is calculated with very little room for error. Digital models created from these survey data are therefore incredibly accurate and are representative of the true conditions within and around the space. Precise data also means more realistic and accurate drawings and mappings manually, or with the help of the latest software programs.
