Laser Scanning

Faster with Terrestrial Laser Scanning

Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) is the ideal replacement for the classic manual measurement with tape measure and plumb bob. With TLS, large areas from 1 to 150m can be recorded. For this purpose, the scanner generates a three-dimensional point cloud. This can then be used in a variety of ways.

The measurement is carried out with an accuracy between 2mm and 5mm, depending on the nature and size of the object. Due to the fast measuring method of laser scanning, all visible structures with a measuring point distance of 1.5 to 15 mm can be measured in a few minutes. The resolution is adjustable on the instrument and is additionally influenced by the measuring distance. Larger measuring ranges are measured by linking several scanner positions. With the optional acquisition of panoramic color images, the 3D scans can be colorized so that photorealistic 3D point clouds are obtained as a result.

When using the 3D scans recorded on site, you have the following options: Use the colored 3D point cloud for dimensionally accurate 3D visualization to understand and analyze complex local conditions. With a free viewer software the 3D data can be viewed on the PC and virtually inspected.
