3D laser scanning really comes into its own when utilised within the heritage environment. The ability to accurately capture complex and irregular features quickly and remotely has obvious benefits over traditional survey techniques. Combined with photographic imagery a comprehensive base dataset can be achieved. 

Once collected this base data can be revisited over time as funds or need dictate to extract a variety of products including:

• 2D Deliverables -Plans, Sections, Elevations, topographic survey

• 3D Models – Delivered in DWG, DGN or Revit (See BIM section) Format. 3D topographic surveys.
• RGB (Colour) point clouds
• Orthoimages
• Mesh Models – Combining scan data with high-resolution digital imagery suitable for 3D printing
• Animations and fly-throughs


Benefits of 3d laser scanning:


Digital Power

Digitising unique objects with full spatial and colour information.


High detail and high precision.


In addition to the architectural recording and archiving the dataset can also be utilised in the production of marketing and visual material.


New methodology for orthoimages.
