What Is 3D Laser Scanning?

3D laser scanning uses either phase-based or LIDAR technology to accurately and efficiently capture 3-dimensional data in
a wide variety of settings, regardless of size and surface features. Without physically touching what is being measured, 3D
laser scanning creates clear and precise digital records of existing structural or topographical conditions. The scan produces
millions of measurement points called “coordinates.” Together the points create the raw data in the form of “point clouds.” Each
coordinate in a point cloud contains an x, y, and z value, which are also known as (Northing (y), Easting (x), and Elevation (z)).
The intricate detail of these points means that a person can get an exact measurement from any one point to any other
point in the point cloud.

What is 3D laser scanning used for?
3D laser scanning can be used to survey complex and large-scale structures.

Some of its common uses:

There are a number of benefits to using 3D laser scanning (safe, fast, accurate, cost effective). It’s safe: Because it is a
non-contact measurement tool, it eliminates the need for using cranes or other mechanical equipment in order to reach;
for example, telecommunications towers or overhead structural, mechanical, electrical or plumbing features.
For this
reason, it is a much safer way to collect data because the scanning can be done from the ground. Laser scanning is also a
quicker method of gathering necessary dimensions, particularly in complex spaces.   

Additionally, laser scanning is a precise way of collecting data more accurately than traditional methods of retrieving the
same data. All of this leads to a more cost-effective means of capturing geospatial dimensions and features.
