3D Building Survey 2017: A New Dimension and Innovation in Surveying
High definition surveying is consisting of a portable 3D laser scanner supporting standard surveying procedures, such as setting up instrument, measurement of height-of-instrument, and instrument orientation. In 3D laser scanning, any exposed surface is remotely captured in minutes forming a dense and accurate 3D point cloud. With high definition scanners, project designers benefit directly with a number of details provided, giving a scan rate of 50,000 points per second, covering a larger area in a shorter period of time, as compared to conventional survey techniques. The resulting data undoubtedly allows more extraction of built-in information needed for building higher confidence within the design team.
3D laser scanners have variety of uses including planning and design stages, site model 3D printing, rights of light reports, topographic surveys, detailed elevation surveys, artefact archives and heritage buildings, bidding process estimates, building information modelling, measured building surveys, MEP surveys, monitoring land deformation, archaeological sites surveys, accident investigation, as-built surveys for construction and engineering projects, volume surveys, post-construction scans for facilities management, and roads, tunnels, bridges, bridges, railways and quarries surveys. In order to avoid hazards and obstructions, the 3D laser scanner can be remotely set up for safety. Because it uses a non-contact survey technique, this is the ideal instrument for surveying potentially hazardous and inaccessible areas like railways, public roads, high-rise and general public places. In 3D building surveying, the instrument used is highly efficient, accurate, versatile and with multi-purpose features, capable of handling civil engineering, building, and plant projects. You can commission a 3D laser scan before the actual work starts to assist in logistics, in order to allow the designing team to obtain adjacent building heights and important dimensions.
Digital surveying provide a comprehensive data capture service with the use of latest 3D laser scanning technology, carrying out point cloud surveys. Everything can be mapped virtually with a 3D scanner, from very small industrial components to large scale city models. 3D laser scanners come with different capabilities, ranges, durability, speed and accuracies, and when a site or item is scanned, accurate 3D data or point cloud is generated. Now, it is possible to record surface reflectivity generating an intensity value with a 3D scanner, because it has built-in cameras that allow application of colour in the form of an RGB value in each point. In a 3D laser survey, the instrument has a superior accuracy and fast data capture rate, so it rapidly replace traditional methods of surveying. Because of innovation and technology, surveying works are made simpler and easier, because of the utilization of 3D laser scanners for faster, accurate, reliable and precise results.
