3d Laser Scanning And Its Usability

by Ashley Ronald Writer
The meaning of the term 3d laser scanning, for a common man is limited to a 3d movie or a scan taken during the annual medical check up or kids can relate to the term more easily with a wide  variety and availability of 3d video and mobile games. For engineers though, the term is far more complex.The 3d scanner is an instrument used to collect information and data about the shape and appearance of the objects from the environment and the real existent world. This information is then used to design the 3 dimensional models and images.

Various types of technologies are used to construct and make a variety of 3d scanning devices. Each type has its pros and cons, limitations and advantages. The functioning of the 3d scanners can be compared to the working of the camera. A 3d laser scanner like most other scanners, use the mirrors that are moveable for steering the laser beam which is either one dimensional or two dimensional.

3d laser scanning is widely used as it is advantageous; it reduces the errors and speeds up the data collection process.It also enhances the design process.3d laser scanning is also used for building scanning, archaeology, land surveying and for many more such tasks.Surveying is a process used to determine the position, distance and angles between the three dimensional points. These surveys are done by licensed surveyors mostly for civil and government purposes.3d laser scanning is also widely used in the transportation related surveys.

Laser scanning surveys have time and again proven the viability of the 3d laser scanning with figures depicting fewer costs, lesser time and are also user friendly as compared to the traditional surveys.

3d scanning is the most preferred tool used in engineering surveys  which boasts of a scan rate of 50,000 points per second, as the great amount of details obtained from a 3d laser scanner  are extremely helpful for the building  design and construction team.

This type of scanning issued extensively in the following laser scanning surveys.

-    Designing, redesigning and construction of roadways, including rail, tunnels and bridges airports, ports and canals.
-    Recording land deformation
-    Investigations related to accidents.

Excellent accuracy of the data, combined with time, cost efficiency and the user friendly technology, makes the 3d scanning the most favorable tool for laser scanning surveys across the globe.  Fast laser scanners are indeed the future of the laser scanning technology.

City surveys is a Laser Scanning Surveys Company invites you, where you will find a team of professionals specialized in all type of Land survey, 3d Laser Scanning and Vibration monitoring.
