Highly accurate 3D laser scanning is an efficient alternative to traditional survey work where a large amount of detail is required. The technology can be used to complete photorealistic scans of buildings, structures, open spaces and other natural or engineered environments with exceptional speed and precision.
Scanning involves collecting data from multiple scan points to register the complete scan. The result is a
pointcloud, which can be coordinated by applying surveyed coordinates to known points or targets.
The photographic overlay data is captured at the same time, with an RGB (Red, Green, Blue) value
associated to each cloud point. The pointcloud data can then be imported into CAD/GIS software directly, meshed, or modelled through Recon's specialist software.
