Land Surveying or Laser Scanning?
Laser scanning and laser surveying are the same thing. They involve the using a laser scanner to get a detailed, spacial representation of scanned objects on your property. The term laser surveying evolved from the traditional surveying of objects using global positioning systems (GPS) technology. Identification Laser scanning or laser surveying transforms the scanned object or environment into a three-dimensional (3-D) computer model. Engineers use the models for conceptual purposes or as foundational models supporting new designs.
Function Laser scanners work on the principles of triangulation, applying a number of laser beams to objects, triangulating their position, recording the results and displaying them in the form a 3-D computer model. Data from laser scans produces tiny data points integrated together to produce a sharp, digital representation of the scanned object or environment. Significance Laser scanning is more cost-effective and provides more accurate results than traditional GPS methods. However, in most cases, companies outsource their laser scanning needs, especially if scanning is not a regular part of a company's operation.
